Now to the name of the quilt, do you ever say a name too quickly and it comes out wrong? Well, a couple of days after these two were engaged they came over for Erin's birthday party. The little guy and I were playing and I heard the door. I jumped up and said to him, "Jakelyn and Kake are here, let's go see them." They heard me and we all got a chuckle out of Jakelyn. Well, it just seemed the perfect thing to call their quilt, a combination of their names. I have embroidered a quilt label for the back of this quilt with "The Jakelyn quilt" , along with their names, the wedding date and my name. This is something I really need to get in the habit of doing for every quilt.
I had purchased 2 jelly rolls thinking the engaged couple would want a queen to king size quilt. No, they just really wanted a lap quilt, so I have an extra jelly roll to give away along with the scraps from this quilt. Anyone interested? If so leave a comment about something silly you have said and I will draw the winner on April 4th.
