My good friend Chrisann is having a baby any time here.
It is her fourth son, and they are VERY excited!
This sweet baby is a long time coming!
I have been making memory quilts for Chrisann and her dad and siblings from her mother, Karen's clothes.
Karen passed away a few years ago from Multiple Myeloma.
You can see all of the quilts HERE.
Chrisann's little boy will be named Kainoa.
That means, strength of the ocean.
I thought wave quilting would be perfect :)
I used the same clothing for Kainoa's quilt as I used for his moms.
This quilt came together over night, literally!
I started working on this at 7:30 pm.
The neighbors showed up at 8:30 pm for a visit. (It was such a fun surprise!!)
At 10:30 pm I resumed working on it until midnight.
I laid in bed awake until 3:18 am, decided to get up and shower and then work on the quilt. At 5:18 am (I find irony in the time), I got back into bed and slept until 9 am. I bound and labeled the quilt from 9:30-11 am...and made it to the baby shower just in time ;)
The backing is made from Grandma Karen's bathrobe. So soft!
The quilt is 40"x40"
