We have gotten a lot of special things for this baby boy but this is probably my favorite. My soul friend Lisa's mother handmade this incredible quilt for Avett. I had this idea to throw a bunch of fabrics together in strips without any thought of a color scheme. I pulled fabrics from things I had at home and then CJ let me go shopping in her fabric stash! We cut fabric strips together for 4 hours one day.
The blanket is so special because we can look at it and say "That fabric came from an antique shop in Colorado when I was shopping with Aunt Makayla when she was pregnant with McKenzie." Or, "These are scraps from when I accidentally made backwards Z's for Jenna's wedding." Or, "These were pajama pants for Karen and this was the leftover from Lisa's linen pants."
Every piece in there has a story. And let me just tell you how amazing CJ is. When you thought it couldn't get any sweeter she goes and makes a matching small version of the quilt for EJ to play with for her baby dolls. They are both something that we will cherish forever, thank you CJ, we love you!
