Sweet birthdays and a much loved quilt

This is our daughter just a month or so after she was born,  her birthday was this week 
And it was especially special to celebrate it with her and her sweet newborn "baby Jack". 

Their family had professional family photos made by http://www.averiblackmon.com I know Nina worked hard to get all their outfits coordinated,  I was so surprised and pleased to see they used a scrappy string quilt that I sewed for them several years ago.  Jilly, who blogs at http://simplegifts365.blogspot.com isent me a box of her fabric scraps and I think I sewed this quilt 100% from her scraps.  Jilly, I know you will like the quilt and that the photos were taken in The Botanic Gardens in our town.  

Baby Jack has a head full of dark hair just like his momma did.  We are wondering if it will turn blond and be straight like his mom or curly like his siblings or will it stay dark like his dad's.

Her husband was also in the photos but I don't have access to all of the shots yet or I would show him too.  He is a great guy and my favorite son in law.

  3. He is such a cutie...and I love that his name is Jack. I have only known two in my lifetime...so far;-) He also appears to have long fingers...future surgeon?

    I remember some of those scraps and so glad you were able to use them. Who knew then a sweet baby boy named Jack would be using it someday. If you are bored I have more, hehehe.
    blessings, jilly

    1. Thank you Jilly, I am pretty partial this baby and his name, and so far, he can is the calm one, just like your son, Who knows what the future holds but long fingers and long feet on the babies in this family is normal.
      Thanks for the offer but I currently have plenty of projects and supplies and a not nearly enough free sewing time. You'll be the first person I check with when I ever get caught up :)
