Some Finishes for April

My finishes for April are Alex's birthday card quilts for his first and second birthdays--caught up at last!

The quilt for his first birthday is kind of a play on words--the old saying "Baby Makes Three"--but because big brother Benjamin was a wee bit jealous as a two-year-old new big brother, Alex took a few hits early on.
"I didn't mean to hit baby," Benj would say with his big blue eyes wide. So Mommy and I used to joke that if Alex made it through his first year, he would be invincible. We second kids have to be tough, you know!

Well Alex (whose brother still often calls him "Baby"), turned out to be tougher than we imagined. He's a daredevil. Standing on chairs, climbing things, giving his mother heart failure, etc. So, I decided to commemorate that by having him dancing on a chair for his second birthday quilt.

And, any resemblance to Charlie Brown you might notice is purely intentional and Mommy finally found the shirt to prove it!
