Everyone I know is pregnant this year.. and everyone is having boys! So that means it’s time to make little boy quilts! This is a sweet little red and blue color scheme and the backing is a navy blue flannel with little red fire trucks! I can’t wait to see how this one looks finished. It’s just adorable! After its washed and quilted it should measure out to be about a 36″ square. The binding I have chosen for it is a red check print. I used various fat quarters and cut them down to 4.5″ squares but the design is very charm pack friendly! Mom does not have a nursery theme that I am aware of so I ran around the quilt shop just picking up colors that I thought looked good together.
Now for an update about the surgery… if you ever have to have all 4 wisdom teeth pulled, just go to sleep and wake up when it’s over! I decided I wanted local anesthetic with the gas.. it probably would have been fine for most people but apparently I am super hard to numb because I felt the whole thing! He used 9 canisters of local anesthesia and kept my gas up super high but it was a horrible, horrible experience and you know what the worst part was? during the pull what should come on the radio but Peter Gabriel’s Sledge Hammer! Yeah. Perfect. I lost some jaw bone and got some stitches and I am still quite sore but I am finally able to eat some solid foods again. I survived and the worst is hopefully behind me now!
