Blogger's Quilt Festival Lorenzo's Quilt


I have a baby brother; Jaime, I am 11 years older than he is. And he had a baby. I was so excited, so thrill, I wanted to make him a baby quilt. Jaime and his wife Marion don't like baby colors. and I think dark colors are to strong for babys so I played with what I had and I came up with this:
It had to be masculine my brother said, I think I did it because he has been using it for a whole year now. I hope the next baby is a girl,as I will go crazy with pinks.
Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment and enjoy the festival
