I try to make each of the kids a bed size quilt either at their 3rd or 4th birthday. Sophia's quilt was a long time coming! The quilt top was assembled from blocks made by a quilting bee I was involved with while I was pregnant with and just after Sophia was born. At the time, I put the top together, then put it away. As her fourth birthday approached, I pulled this top out as it seemed to fit her crazy personality.
My favorite part of the front of the quilt is the piano key border.
I had big hopes and plans for the back, but because I was sick and tired with this pregnancy, they didn't happen. Fortunately, I love the way the back looks! The pink and the gray strips represent what Sophia calls herself sometimes: Mingo Elephant.
This is a closer view of Sophia's name. I have put the kids names on the back of each of their quilts, and often it is my favorite part!
I have named the quilt, Crazy About You because the quilt top is crazy and Sophia is crazy, and I love this crazy girl that God has given to me! Maybe soon I'll get a label on it!
