I love when new babies arrive into the world. This baby is especially close to my heart. I really love his parents, they are so nice, giving, and are really good with my kids. More importantly he is a miracle! You could argue that all babies are a miracle, and I agree, but this little guy, medically was one in a million chance of conceiving him naturally.
A few years ago, his daddy was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He fought with all he had, and today is cancer free. While undergoing chemotherapy, he was told it would really decrease his chances of being able to have any children, since he was 27 and just got married, and didn’t have any children yet, that was something that would be really hard to deal with. Once he was in the clear for about a year, the two decided to start trying to get pregnant despite all of the low chances of being able to have this baby without any outside help. After trying for months and months and starting to get discouraged, it finally happened, and now 40 weeks later, Lucas William is here with ten fingers and ten toes, and is and will be a constant reminder of the power of prayer and God’s wonderful hand in all of this.
In this post I will be showing you the quilt I made him and a tutorial and how to make it. And also at the end will be an awesome trick I discovered when making burp rags!
|Cut 4″x6″ rectangles and 2″x6″ rectangles|
|Make your own pattern out of the different rectangles.|
|Start sewing the rectangles together by rows.|
|Sew the rows together.|
|Once all of the rows are sewn together, sew on the minky so that both fabrics are face to face. ..|
|Leave enough unsewn to turn it right side out.|
|I found a cool trick. I used a bowl and traced it twice, (one for the top of the burp rag,
one for the bottom).
Leaving about an inch in between.
