A few years ago I was pregnant with our second son and began the search for the fabric that would dictate the colors of the baby's room. I knew I wanted green and aqua so when I spotted these fabrics I quickly snatched them up. As they sat in the empty crib however I decided they weren't quite what I wanted. They seemed too grown up somehow. So into the closet they went; I knew I would find a use for them eventually.
Cue 2010. A few months ago I discovered the small stack of fabric on the bottom shelf of my closet and immediately thought of my nephew Davis. He lives far away from us in a beautiful part of Oregon. We don't know each other well, but I recently got to spend some time with him at a family reunion. Davis has got to be the coolest 4 year old I know.
As luck (or bad-luck) would have it, my quilt arrived at his house last week, shortly before he fell and broke his arm. I hear that when he got home he wrapped himself in the quilt and took a little rest. Davis, I do the same thing when I'm not feeling well. (oh and by the way... did you notice the little butterflies in the fabric? They're hiding!)
Finished quilt size: 50x65
