Hey, what do you know--one of mine!! I started with a cute little cupcake print, since I knew a girl was on the way, and the Pure Baby Boy pattern from Moda Bake Shop. I prefer the baby quilts I make to be larger than normal so they get used through the toddler years. I think this one ended up 42" x 52". I matched fabrics in my stash to the colors in the cupcake print and cut 2.5" strips. I added an extra two columns of squares but left off the solid strip.
Jordyn's father, Kyle, works with me at my day job where we sell greenhouse supplies. So I knew I wanted a flower in there somewhere. I'd also been admiring the quilting of modern quilter Angela Walters and prefer to try something new on my OWN quilts. LOVE this combination spiral/pebble design. I added the huge freehand flower on the right hand side.
Kyle is also a Nascar fan. Please go down a few photos and click on the picture he had taken of his daughter--in a TIRE! How cute is that?!? So I printed the photo on fabric and appliqued it as the center of the flower. And hence, the name of the quilt--"When Jordyn's Tired"! LOL!

Isn't this precious????
