For Sweet Katelyn

Our best friend, Tony, from high school had a beautiful baby girl, Katelyn.  On Sunday we celebrated her baptism in San Francisco and the traditional red egg and ginger ceremony in San Mateo.  I knew I wanted to make something for her but couldn't think of what to make her.  Until Vince reminded me that I used to make baby quilts all the time when we were first married.  (Here is where I do a shout out to my dear friend, Kate, who taught me how to sew my first quilt!  Thanks Kate!!!)
So, E and I went to the fabric store, checked out the pink section, bought some beautiful shades of pink, and I "whipped" this up the night before.  Crazy, but it was done... from midnight until 5AM in the morning I chugged along...  (Yeh family... maybe don't look too closely here, Emily will be receiving one similar!)
 I'm pleased with it and I hope she will have a few fun moments on her tummy here or playing on those play things (what are those things called?!) or maybe have a nice nap/rest on the floor... or even have a few spit ups...  who knows!
 Here it is with the tea spoon I hand stamped for her.
It was a great day... Vince was the official photographer, so more photos to come.


  1. That is adorable. And I think you may be insane. Super super sweet and all, but MIDNIGHT to FIVE AM? Yikes! Congrats for pumping out such a cute project in only 5 middle of the night hours. You rocked it.

  2. WOW! What a beautiful piece of work, S!! You definitely rocked it!

    Happy Wednesday!

  3. What a special gift! There will be lots of tummytime and snuggling on it, I'm sure!
