Schnibbles State Fair

This is the week for making baby quilts.
Jen and Zach are my daughter's best friends. In fact Aubrey introduced Jen and Zach.
For the last several years of their marriage, this wonderful couple were told that the chances of having a baby would be near to impossible. They worked towards adoption, but faced roadblock after roadblock.
You can imagine the elation they felt when they found out Jen is expecting. Those of us who know them, and have been aware of how much they have wanted children, have cried tears of joy in their behalf.
I e-mailed Jen right away and told her I wanted to make her a baby quilt.

Jen and Zach went to quilt stores near their home and selected the fabric line Aviary by Moda to decorate the nursery.
I could only find charm squares in this line at stores here in Southern Utah. I used Miss Rosie's Quilt Co., Schnibbles, State Fair for the pattern. I enlarged the quilt a little to make it more crib size.
Monday it will be off to the quilter.
Congratulations again Jen and Zach. I am so happy for you, and your little girl will be so fortunate to have you as her parents!

I can't believe I am the first one to leave a message! I feel privileged! The baby quilt is beautiful! I have that pattern and am looking forward to making it. I just got 2 charm packs of April Cornell's Spring Magic and am thinking that would be pretty. Yesterday I posted a sneak peak at a baby quilt I just finished and took to the quilter. I would love your feedback! Have a happy weekend!
