Sonny's Quilt

Sonny's Quilt is finished!
Folded

I wanted it to be machine washable, so I stitched the heck out of it and tested it out in my mom's washer and dryer.

Luckily I did that, since a small part opened up. My awesome Mom stitched it up while I did a janky embroidery job. It was very quick because I was so excited and impatient to see Brooke and Sonny.

Horrible Embroidery!

My highschool friends call me "Merce", which is the mumbled form of "Mah-riss" created by an old friend with a thick Puerto-Rican accent. It's probably my favorite nickname.

Here's the photo shoot on my front lawn in December no less!

Here's the finished product! It's not perfect, but Brooke and Lou loved it.

Quilt for Sonny

It's the perfect size for Sonny to roll around on the floor and play, when he gets a wee bit older.

Hey Marissa-

Merce is my mom's nickname. It's short for Mercedes.
The quilt is really beautiful.

That's a beautiful quilt! I really want to make one, but am afraid it'll take forever. I am amazed at how quickly you whipped up something so gorgeous and involved.

Thanks for the blog comments and birthday wishes. Julian is my husband's son, by the way.

I love the style of this quilt (does the pattern have a name?). The colors and the piecing together ("piecing together" probably has a proper term, too, unknown to this non-quilter) is just awesome. Lucky Sonny.
