Another quilt given this week! Such a great feeling!
This week the Gargoyle Quilt made its way to a new home - baby Logan, due in about a month.
Logan's mom works for my hubby. Logan's dad used to work for my hubby. The hubby has become good friends with them and requested I make a baby quilt for them as soon as he found out mom was pregnant.
The pattern decision was a difficult one. The hubby wanted something more complicated, but I held my ground. If you give baby #1 something complicated, it's expected that baby #2 and #3, etc, all get something equally complex. I've learned this lesson the hard way. :)
And I was itching to make an argyle-like quilt. (Or gargoyle as my aunt Ann would have called it.)
So I looked around the internet for inspiration, borrowed a magazine of my mom's for a bit more and eventually just sat down and figured this out for myself. No actual pattern, but really who needs a pattern for 3" squares and 1" sashings?
You'll remember the parents-to-be are huge Steelers fans, right? So you'll remember the back photo I showed a while ago:
Mom-to-be loved it. She sent a big hug home for me with the hubby.
I've been working on the cows, so I'll try to get a photo of them soon!
