quilt for kobe
The week before Cora's arrival, I worked my last few days, caught an awful cold, and had my last ultrasound and last OB appointment. At that appointment, I found out that I needed to have this baby soon or else (the doctor was threatening induction), so I came home from the appointment with a sense of urgency to sew Kobe's mat (finally!). It was his last chance to have my free time so focused on him. Priorities in our house would soon change!
I knew that I wanted to avoid being induced, so I was convinced that she would arrive before that had to happen. My mom called it 'being optimistic', but I was right! She arrived a week early. And I'm so glad I had finished this project for my first baby:)
Kobe seems to like this new mat much better than the old upholstery fabric one. He's picky about textures, and, like me, seems to prefer cotton over synthetic fabrics. See-- it even tastes good!
