When Gabriella was pregnant with her first child - also Ben's first child! - I came to visit them in New Orleans. We visited the local quilt shop and they picked out four purple fabrics for their child's baby quilt. I added others from my stash and made the flying geese quilt above for Emet, who is seen below with his adoring parents, not too long after his birth in July of 2001.
Then, rather quickly, Gabriella became pregnant again and I used the left overs from the first quilt to make the 9-patch for Emet's little brother, Eli, who is enjoying his quilt below.
