Twister baby

 Just around the time school closed and everything was shut down I learned that a young couple in my church was expecting their first child.  Of course I expected that none of this was going to last and I'd have no problem giving them a quilt.  When I found out they were expecting a girl I picked an Asian themed fabric with pink and rust tones because mom is a big fan of K-pop and Korean culture.  Going through the quilt shop website I picked another fabric and asked the owner if she thought they'd coordinate and about backing.  Through I series of photo messages I was ready to order (eventually adding another fabric) but it took me a while to decide what pattern to use.  I'd pinned a tutorial for this twister block on Pinterest a couple years ago and decided it would work well and the top went together super quickly.  Then the top sat on my stack for a couple months until I got a message that mom was on her way to labor and delivery...I had been thinking I might hand quilt but I waited too long for that decision.  I'm still learning to machine quilt so I decided just to do a simple grid following the block outlines.   My niece and I took a trip to the park so I could take pictures of the baby quilt in a child's atmosphere.  I hope little A enjoys many days playing outdoors.  

Our church is meeting but with all the increased health concerns I knew it would be some time before the new baby would likely be coming to church so I made arrangements to drop off the quilt on their doorstep (I was so worried I'd gotten the wrong house even though it perfectly matched their description!) when I was going to be nearby.  For the label I chose 2 Timothy 2:1 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in in Christ Jesus.
