I wasn't going to make Isaac a quilt first (he is not my oldest nephew), but Sarah and Andrew had purchased fabric and paid someone to make him a quilt when he was born (2011). The lady did not use most of the fabric they bought, so Sarah just gave it to me. I decided I should use some of what I was given (I didn't love all of it) and make a toddler sized quilt for Isaac. That was a dumb idea, he already had a quilt. Duh. But long before I figured that out I went out and got more fabric to go with the quilt and cut it all up. I had pieced the blocks together and sewed the blocks into rows when I told Sarah what I was doing and showed it to her.
I won't lie, I was a bit petrified. It seemed like such a daunting task. But really it turned out ok.
