When Jen from LWPH Sews asked if I wanted to do a collaboration together, I was PRETTY freaking excited! I had been wanting a blanket very much like the ones she makes, since before I ever found her shop!

Collaboration is a generous word, haha because basically I just said, “GIMME GIMME GIMME!” And Jen did all the work! But I was obsessed with the stripes on the binding of this quilt, and wanted some that would look cute in Mr. Rad’s room. So Jen found a fabulous yellow and white stripe. I also have a hard time letting go of the black and white…hahaha and wanted a more mature backing so that this quilt can live in Mr. Rad the teenagers room and not just Mr. Rad the baby’s room.

The black and white sketch print (for the backing fabric) ended up looking even more awesome than expected!

I also really liked the idea of a black background with white plus signs, just to be different! Jen made all my dreams come true! Needless to say I squealed and squealed when I opened this sucker up!

LWPH Sews is offering my quilt in her shop RIGHT HERE!

Wait, did you guys also want to talk about how cute Mr. Rad is? He’s 10 MONTHS OLD!!! I know. Try not to cry. But also don’t feel weird for noticing how cute his tiny butt is in that last picture, in those little blue pants?! GAH.

Beautiful quilts are an investment piece, but having a blanket you love for you tiny one is just the best thing ever. Plus, and this is going to sound lame, but you want a blanket that you love having in pictures! Because your little ones spend so much time on the floor, swaddled in them, and nestled in them.

Thank you SO MUCH Jen! I love my quilt!

And thank you Heather from The Coterie for always getting the best pictures!

Happy Tuesday!
