You might recall my post in August about this special memory quilt….a gift from Hildagarde to her cousin. I love the colors and thoughtfulness of this quilt. The picture of the small child is that of Hildagarde…a special way to “signature” the quilt. Look carefully and you will see a juke box  selection, a map, a CocaCola bottle, a menu, and different choices of sundaes and ice cream cones. This indeed is one my favorite quilts that I have seen. So glad that I got to see and share the completed quilt with you.

untitled (7)Young Jacob, Bill’s great grandson, was born June 8…..and we, Bill and I, delivered, Jacob’s knitted vest (just finished and wash blocked last night) today while we were at family anniversary celebration . I had another idea in mind for Jacob’s gift, but Bill wanted a “vanilla” blue vest with red accents in the neckline and ribbing….so that’s what it is. Of course, I used Brown Sheep’s Cotton Fleece (80% cotton and 20% wool).

The most engaging part of this knit was the neckline….I pulled the pattern from Michelle Wyman’s baby pullover sweater. Michelle was the master of truly “finished” center V-neckline.untitled (6)

I already have one gift for Grace….but she was born early and is tiny…so I want to knit a gift that is a little more fitting for her when she comes home from the hospital next month. Her early arrival is being celebrated this coming Sunday….so I really need to click those needles!!
