Jessica’s baby quilt has a long history. I started it in September 2006 with the intention of giving it my friend who had a baby in February 2007, but I didn’t finish in time for her baby shower and got her something else. Then I intended to finish in time for the birth of my nephew in March 2008, but I didn’t finish in time and got him a different baby gift. At that point James told me I should just plan on finishing it for whenever we were going to have a baby. Now, keep in mind, he told me this before we even starting trying. So I’d work on here and there. A lot of the time spent working on it was long car trips to Midland. Then we found out we were pregnant in February and I kicked my butt into high gear. I finished it in June. But I put the finishing touch of Jessica’s name, birthday, and birth weight at the bottom of the quilt this week.
