Fabric Friday E Quilt

Riley Blake has some great new fabrics out and I really like this new one called Fly a Kite.
I mentioned this week I wanted to make an E quilt for Eliza. I'm a little late to the party considering she is 2 months old. But since she's still at Primary Regional Medical Center, it's okay. Poor baby. Yesterday she had surgery to place a G tube into her stomach for more direct and longer term feeding. The surgery went pretty well. We've had Allison at our house while my daughter is with Eliza. I just pray Eliza heals very fast so she can begin feedings soon.
This piece from Fly a Kite really caught my eye. I really love the colors and the pattern. I knew when I saw it I would have to use it in a project.
The companion prints are just darling. I like them all.
I'm drawn to anything with strawberries.
And the gingham's are really perfect for any project.
The colors of the fabric are like these pretty cupcakes. Which I may add, are delicious. My daughter Tracey was here from Oklahoma so we had to celebrate with cupcakes. Tracey is an identical twin to Whitney, Eliza and Allison's mom so Allison thinks she has 2 moms and it was really helpful that Tracey could spend the entire week helping Whitney with Allison.

Thanks for all your sweet comments and emails about Eliza. Hopefully this change in how they feed her will help her grow. The doctors are very hesitant to predict progress but we really are hoping that by the first part of June she can come home.

So sweet and perfect for little 'E'. She is a darling and God's plan for her will be perfect!

'Fly a Kite' is amazing! My girlfriend and I are planning a stitch along quilt with that fabric... and one day we'll hopefully get started on it! We've already bought a fq bundle so we'd better get designing!

Love all the fabric you have shown. But I'm lovin' the E Block. I might have to make me some or a whole quilt. Turned sideways it makes a M. So it would be a EM quilt. Is that egotistical?

Such cute fabrics!! I love them! I hope baby E heals quickly! Prayers.

Lynn said...

Awww, that e is cute. I'll be praying for little Eliza and of course the rest of her family.

What a precious E for Eliza. :o) I am continuing to pray for her strength to grow. :o) Sweet little thing.
I am in love with the Fly A Kite fabric. I have two charm packs that I am really enjoying looking at. They will become something extra special. :o)
Have a wonderful weekend.
hugs, Trish

Ha! All this time and I didn't know that part of your brood was twins! (Anything else you need to tell me LOL???) LOVE that E block -- that's going to be one cute quilt. Sending little baby hugs and kisses to Sweet Little Eliza!

I just found your blog, and I love it!
Hope things are going smoothly for your little girl. My son had a G-tube as well for a few years, so if you ever have questions or need advice about the G tube, I'm more than happy to talk! (and he also had reflux problems)
Take care,
Jen :)
