Carma is named after my maternal Grandma with the same name.
These are some pictures of my Grandma that I have to hang up in Carma's room.
My grandma made lots of nine patch quilts, so I had wanted to make something for Carma to represent that. I found this urban glorified nine patch pattern that I really liked and I just made it match the curtains I had already made for this bedroom.
The tradition is that I piece my baby a quilt and my mom quilts and binds it for me.
When I found out we were having a girl we had already decided we would name a girl after my Grandma. I got really sentimental and I remembered making these stuffed elephants with my grandma when I was around 12. It turns out my mom still had the pattern so she sent it to me and I made Carma some of her own elephants.
