The parents of Grand #3 have chosen a forest theme for the nursery. While sinking my toes into the lime green, shag rug (to mimic the grass), I looked at the beautiful dark wood crib and spied a mischievous fox peeking out from a storage container. For some reason, the song “Teddy Bears Picnic” by Henry Hall started playing in my mind and I can’t find the pause button.
“There’s lots of marvelous things to eat and wonderful games to play
Beneath the trees where nobody sees they’ll hide and seek as long
as they please”
It was my privilege and honor to make the new perfect grand baby to be, a quilt. I used the greens and browns of the nursery. The pattern I chose is called “Forest Pathway”. The quilting thread is lime green.
I purchased a sheet from their registry and promptly cut it up into pieces. Triangles were used for a celebration name banner, long rectangles were for the burp cloths and the remainder became the focal points for the quilt.
Cut, stitched, quilted, labeled, wrapped in paper, mailed, opened, smiles shared….now we wait.
