Zion's Quilt

I am so excited for Zion's new quilt for her big girl bed! My mom, BJ, has been working on this for a few months now! We are stoked. My mom has been quilting since I was a girl, but has gotten very passionate about it in the last 5 plus years with being a "empty nester" and having time to enjoy her hobbies. She made Zion a baby quilt when I was expecting her. It is adorable.....a caterpillar which is so cute and fun.

This is me with the quilt when I was preg with Zion. But now, my mom got to have a bigger task of making a full size quilt for Z. I picked out the pattern a while back for her to go off of. I have been a fan of Chevron ( like everyone else ) and wanted something with that implemented. I love how it is a little bit traditional yet fun at the same time. Zig-Zag seemed very appropriate for a girls room too:)

I just googled Chevron quilts til i found a fav for my mom to use. This is the pattern I loved! Next up, was picking out the fabric for it. My BFF Jody sells designer fabric on Etsy and I was so thrilled when I found this line she was selling. It is Joel Dewberry- Heirloom.

I love color! I think the vintage floral with the graphics are so fun for a girls room! I m so excited for Zion to have this for years to come. We picked 8 of the patterns out for the quilt....

So then it began....the quilting process for my mom:) Today, my husband Andy and I got to see the quilt and I m in LOVE with it. Zion actually showed us it. She is just as excited as I am. It is so fun to see how my little 2 year old comprehends everything these days.  My mom had it laying on the bed in their guest bedroom for us to see it. It still needs the backing and trimmings etc. but the hours have definitely been put in. My mom was even up til like 1am last night sewing it for it to be ready for viewing. So here it is:

Isn't it awesome? The pix from my iPhone don't do it justice. here is a detailed shot of the work:

I can't wait to put it in Zion's new room! I will make sure to update all of you on more pix of it with better lighting once it is done. I must do some room progress pix too! We are currently getting ready to put Zion in the "guest bedroom". So Baby sister can go in the current nursery. Zion will be getting a bunk bed and we will definitely be decorating and making it fun. Her sister will share rooms with her in a couple years. :) but right now we are focusing on getting her transitioned well before baby arrives in August. So the quilt will be a bit big, but I want it to be perfect for when Z has a full size bed down the road! I m so excited. I will keep ya updated with room reveals and such :) 
have a great weekend! off to a wedding reception.....
