stitched with love

Can I brag about my wonderful Mother-in-law, Rhonda, for a minute? Believe me, I'm not just sucking up. There is no need, I'm already the favorite in-law. [Just kiddin Jalene ;-) ] This woman is such a great example to me. What a woman of God! Even though she is a very busy woman, she helped me take on the big project of making Beck's crib bedding. (And when I say "helped me take on" I mean, there's no way I could have done this without her) We had TONS of fun picking out the fabric and pattern, cutting everything out, sewing, and just spending time together. I am seriously going to miss her when they leave in July. Those missionaries in Oklahoma don't know how lucky they are yet!
The quilt and bedding set turned out so so cute. I just love how vibrant and fun the colors are. I hope the colorful animals help Beck to have sweet, adventurous dreams!

This is Beck's first time in the crib with the new set. Honestly, he was mesmerized by the animals, he loved it!
The quilt could not have turned out any cuter! It has lots of super soft fabrics on it which is another bonus.
Check out the back, we had it quilted into lions, elephants, and frogs. adorable huh?!
Thanks again Rhonda. I love you!

It turned out great, Leah! So cute. You will love having something with such contrast as his bumper. Stella's has a brown and white damask pattern and she is OBSESSED with it. We just lay her in her crib and she just stares at it and touches it until she falls asleep!
