Design Wall Monday 11/15

Phew it has been a hectic few days, but with the Grace of God we have gotten through them.  My daughter had her baby early, 6 weeks early, so we were a little preoccupied with things other than quilting.  I did sit down last friday and start a quilt which I call a coverlet because a) it is only 2 layers - no batting, and b) it is to cover little Alan Vincent Stewart's layette unit to deflect the light in his corner of the NICU room.  Here is the quilt

The back is flannel and I clipped the edges as a one does a rag quilt in place of binding.  And here is a photo of Alan, our newest sweetie:


He's doing great for a preemie - breathing on his own and eating good.

Needless to say, I'll be happy if I get one shop hop block made this week as otherwise I will be busy.

What a sweetheart he is. The pictures remind me so much of those I took of my daughter who was 5 weeks early. She's 11 now and you'd never know that she started her life out in the NICU.
