A visit with “little man”…and a finished quilt…

OK….I’m crazy “In Love” and I have to introduce you to my first grand baby…Jace James Neubauer…Born Feb, 3rd…6lbs 11 ozs and 19″ long…He is so perfect…a little man…who I just want to snuggle with…I finished his 2nd quilt and brought it over to him on Sunday to try out…I brought Great-Grandma Teri with and I didn’t like sharing!!! But “little man” seems to love his new snowman quilt…hopefully he will be snuggling on Sunday mornings at Grandmas house with it for years to come!!!  He may have to grow into it…while it sells some kits and fabric for my newest line of fabrics from Moda…Snowman Gatherings II!!!

Quilt is called Mr. Snowman…will be coming out in May 2015, quilted by Valerie Krueger LVegas, NV, who has a quilt in the current APQ magazine!!! Made from Homestead Gatherings YAY!!!…other quilt on the couch is Prairie Bride…Jake and Lauren’s wedding quilt.  Jace’s little Buddie Romie…was very protective of his little brother…I’m sure you will be seeing lots of LM as he grows up!!!IMG_1930_2Jace w/Mr.SnowmanIMG_1933_2IMG_1932_2IMG_1944_2

  12. Congratulations Lisa. I.m just in Love too with your grandson. And for sure you’ll be the best grandma and grandpa!!!!!

  13. He’s a huggable and look at that hair. On the quilt Jace looked like he had gained several pounds since birth but in Great Grandma’s arms, he looks like a little baby less than a month old. Have fun with him!

  14. Congratulations with the little man Jace! It is so good to have grandchildren Lisa! January tenth our first granddaughter Kate was born….she is adorable and our grandson Thomas finally said OMA that is grandmother in dutch….;-)

  15. Congratulations! Beautiful baby… Don’t blame you for not wanting to share him!! Love the quilt!

  16. Congratulations grandma, Jace is beautiful. What a joy he will be. Love the snowman quilt and the flannel quilt pattern.

  17. Congratulations! I became a Grandma for the first time on January 28th and I refer to him as “little man” Tyler. Funny coincidence! Jace is beautiful and I know what you mean about being fully in love with him. I love the quilt and cannot wait until May to see all of the projects and the new fabric line.

  18. Congrats on your 1st grandchild!! He’s adorable. When I was trying to look at the quilt my eyes were drawn to the baby and when I was trying to look at the baby my eyes were drawn to the quilt. It was weird…

  19. Lisa, I became a Grandmother for the 1st time, on Valentine’s Day! It’s a little boy, Kenton, and he is as cute as can be, and I never want to stop holding him. Right now I have to share him with his other grandmother, but she is going home soon (to a different state), so I am trying to be generous. (grin). Congrats on your new baby AND your beautiful new fabric line.

  20. Being a Grandma is the best thing in the world. Congratulations to your family. Little man is just adorable and those pics of him on his quilt – so sweet!

  21. Congratulations on the addition of ” Little Man” Jace to your family! He is a cutie as i’m sure you know !!! Love both quilts you posted as well. Enjoy him now as they don’t stay little for long !

  22. What an adorable baby. I am very happy for you. A grandchild is more love than anyone could imagine. I love my Snowman Gatherings one and am anxious to see the new set completed. Keep up the beautiful work!

  23. Yay!!!!! I am so excited to see pics. Jace is adorable but you already knew that. wink wink…..and I agree with Marilyn – where’s your and Nick’s pic with the little guy? Great seeing Terri with him and I’m sure that made her day. Last but not least the quilt looks awesome done Miss y’all and so glad you’re back to snuggle with your new grandbaby –

  24. He is PRECIOUS! Congratulations! Your life will never be the same because those grandchildren add such a special blessing to our lives. So happy for you, Lisa! (The quilt & fabric line is wonderful too)

  25. Thanks for sharing those moments of family life. He looks to be a keeper! Oh, quilts look nice too, but Jace outshines them. I remember when you were working on the bride’s quilt at the gathering years ago.

  26. What a darling baby, all boy! Thanks for sharing, I’ve been concerned since you were in Cali when he was born. Glad to meet him, and the quilt is darling, as always. That flannel quilt looks amazing. Can’t wait!

  27. Congrats Grandma, and to the parents may you get the rest needed and enjoy your little blessing and your hearts be full. Question for you Lisa. Do you use sizing on your flannel quilts? Sometimes it is confusing when not use sizing. I have pretty much been using it on everything just to get more accurate piecing. Flannel I just wasn’t to sure about. I purchased a couple of your flannel kits, before cutting I just needed your opinion. Not only does size matter but so does your opinion. Thanks Kim

  28. Congratulations to all. He is adorable. I became a first time grandma in Dec. I have a beautiful granddaughter who would look great on that snowman quilt with her name-Emily on it. Love the fabrics. Linda

  29. He’s beautiful!!! I see why you call him “Little Man”, I can’t believe he’s only a couple weeks old. So much soulful expression in such a little face. I LOVE the pic with Teri!! Congratulations to you and your family!!! So happy for you all. Thank you for sharing Grandma!! 😊 ps. Your snowman qult is adorable!

  30. Congratulations on your adorable LIttle Man!! Nothing feels better or prouder than being grandma. Love the Snowman quilt and looking forward to the pattern on it and your new flannel. Enjoy that baby snuggle time!!!!

  31. Congratulations Lisa! He is adorable. I love the picture of Teri with him. I can tell she is enjoying holding him. It is hard to explain to someone how special it is to be a grandparent until it happens to them. You won’t want to be traveling so much cause every time you come home he will be so much bigger.

  32. Babies are such a wonderful Blessing. Jace is beautiful. Wishing more blessings to come. Being a parent and then a grand parent is wonderfully amazing. Being a great grand parent is a twofold Blessing. So far I have one great grandchild. Hoping for more. That means lots of more quilts too.ma

  33. OMG! Your little man is so handsome! How incredibly blessed you are. Enjoy, dear one… you deserve every happiness in life ♥
    Your Friend,
    Symantha Thomas
    P.S. His quilt is adorable!

  34. Lisa I’ve never quilted with flannel. Does it roll on the edges or is it more like wool and stays flat? Do you have to use Steam-n-Seem on the back? Any other tips you could share would be appreciated.

  35. So happy for you and your family for the New Addition! Jace is indeed quite the handsome “little man”
    His big snowman should bring him some very sweet dreams!
