We are so close to having a baby!

And when I say we, I mean TBF, and more specifically Momma Bird and Birdman!

If you have no clue who Momma Bird (aka Megan) is, stop and go read this right now – I’ll still be here when you get back.

Better, you have an understanding of what Gidget and Momma Bird mean to me. So imagine my excitement when Megan first revealed she was having a baby girl. I mean I love my play nephews. They make me so happy with their sweet boyish grins and the whole fact that they send me sweet snap chats without Momma Bird’s knowledge is amazing.

I digress. When she told Gidget and myself that she was having a baby girl, I had to do everything in my power not to shout it to the world. All I could think was ruffles, bows, and Vera Bradley baby stuff!

Since I got into this sewing thing, I find the best excuses to buy fabric to make gifts for my two favorite ladies. So imagine finding out we had a girl joining our TBF ranks – WareBear hasn’t been able to deny my sweet spending spree I’ve been on.

As I am walking around good ol’ downtown Carrollton one beautiful spring day, I decided to go into the The Quilt Store. It’s quite possibly the cutest little quilt store with the nicest down home sweet ladies ever. Let me not forget to mention that they have an amazing fabric collection for quilting specifically. Browsing the store and picking up small knick knacks that I need, this charm pack caught my eye. It literally screamed BABY BIRD at me. At this point, I looked around to see if WareBear was anywhere near before I darted like it was Black Friday and the last one on the self to retrieve it.

It wasn’t the last one, but I was so determined to have it in my hands! After checking out, I knew I needed to get home and piece together a baby quilt for the little lady. After piecing, basting, quilting, and binding it – I shipped it off just in time for Momma Bird’s baby shower….can you believe I didn’t take any finished pictures?!?

I got so excited that I complete forgot. So check out the pictures of Momma Bird with Finley’s baby quilt made by one of her favorite play aunts, yours truly.

And in true fashion, what better way to celebrate #backthatazzup Friday than with one of my favorite songs!

I wore yoga pantsI’m sticking with the baby theme and going with Sir Mix A Lot’s master jam, Baby Got Back!

    It’s totally addictive! I made my first, and only, quilt when I was in college for a friend. You did a great job! And I love the name Finley!

      Lisa,

      Thanks for stopping by! I hope you stick around and enjoy my little corner of the interwebs. And you are so right, sewing has become my addiction. I actually love making quilts and blankets now, so it’s something that I continue to work on as much as possible.

      Oh and thank you for the compliment on the name – I know Momma Bird is proud she gets to use it!

      So it’s not weird to feel like we are all having a baby! GREAT! I was nervous…

      Oh and you are so right about her being loved – she is going to be so spoiled rotten!

    Fab quilt, Sevi!! It’s beautiful, & you tell the lovely Momma Bird & Birdman CONGRATS!!! I’m totally jealous of your skills, by the way! I’m still a wee bit anxious about that darn jellyroll quilt of mine… I see you did a diagonal stitch across the squares, & It looks so lovely!! I definitely don’t want to free-hand my poor quilt down — I guarantee it’d look atrocious. xP But I’ll do something this weekend!!

      Thank you! It was definitely a project I enjoyed making. I did a really simple chevron stitch on all the rows. I’ve yet to tackle free hand quilting, so no worries. I can’t wait to see your finished project.
