Baby News

I haven’t blogged here in a while and this is why. Our new baby girl was born on September 10th. I named her Aylin after a fellow quilter and blogger in Germany who blogs at  I had won an Instagram giveaway from Aylin a couple of months ago and I thought her name was so beautiful that I decided to give it to my daughter. Aylin tells me the name means “little moon” or “the shadow around the moon.” We love our new little girl and her beautiful name.

Baby Aylin dressed and ready to go home from the hospital Sept. 13th.

Isn’t it so fascinating how we quilters can make friends with each other online across miles and oceans? I love it! I am off pain killers now and we are into day 10. I think I might be up to sewing soon and the first thing I want to sew is a baby wrap. I am also busy scheming up a mini quilt idea for the Instagram Mini Swap.


  1. Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Her name is perfect and she is beautiful. I love the picture of her with the bib. Her expression is priceless! It's such a look of wonder. If I could caption it it would be, "So you're the one who's voice I've been hearing for nine months."

  2. Aylin is just stunning! Thank so much for sharing her with us 🙂 Glad you are healing up so well! Keep the pics coming!!!
    ps, that Becca! what a perfect bib 🙂
