Baby Ivan's Quilt

This is baby Ivan. Isn't he adorable? 
His daddy and my son served together in the Army in Iraq and became good friends. 
Ivan is wrapped up in the quilt sent from me, here in PA, all the way to Texas, in 2012!

Ivan's quilt is another example of a strip quilt. 
I mentioned in another post that our quilt club had a 3" strip exchange of fun, juvenile prints.
   (If there were 20 people signed up to participate, you brought in 20 3" strips of fabric and you got back 20 assorted fabrics, all mixed up with what the other ladies brought in. A strip exchange is a lot of fun!! 
You never know what you're going to get, and you get an assortment that you 
would never be able to find or purchase on your own.)

I don't know how many strips I received all together in this particular exchange, 
but there were enough to put together three baby quilts, with a few solids and backing 
fabrics added from my stash.. Ivan's was the first one completed. 

And of course, I wasn't thinking "blog", so I didn't take any photos of the 
quilt's design or the piecing process, and had to ask Ivan's mommy to send me a photo. 

Thanks Ivan's Mommy!!
