Max turned one a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to be sure to get this mosaic posted (better late than never!). I had fun photographing him on a different quilt each month, though it definitely became increasingly difficult to get him to lay still while I snapped my photo!

(bribery became necessary!)

What a great year we’ve had!

    You have a very nice blog here.
    I’m trying to get to see your tutorials and some others like “clothes” but I get this message to pop up;
    Warning: Something’s Not Right Here!

    Do you know about it?

      Ursula — I had a similar problem yesterday. Was looking at some of the other quilts and I kept getting a message popping up that this site had been tagged as a site that attaches unwanted links to your computer. Hoping Ashley will investigate to see if she has been hacked.

    Hasn’t the year just flown by? Your quilts are amazing — yours was the first website that I ever bookmarked for inspiration and your talent continues to astound me. I don’t know if you are aware, but when I went to your actual website and clicked on a couple of the quilts to get a close up look a message came on my screen saying they are linked to an ‘attack site’ that might put unwanted programs on the computer. Just wanted to give a heads up that maybe someone has hacked your site making it impossible for others to look at your older quilt posts. HOPE NOT!!

  51. 53

    What a lovely way to memorialize every month of his precious first year of life!
    Thanks so much for sharing…..

  52. 54

    It’s possible that Max is the cutest baby ever.

    Happy Birthday to Max!! He is just adorable πŸ™‚ Gosh, they sure grow so fast.

    Kate says:

    What pattern is that last quilt, where he is sitting up with the cupful of Cheerios? Is it merely a square made up of three triangles of one color with a white one finishing it off?
    Thanks! Kate

    Kersten says:

    Congratulations!! One year is such a fun age. When my second baby turned one he had his first cupcake. He liked it so much that I gave him a second. That was apparently too much because he threw up later. Poor little guy. This mama felt bad! Max is such a cutie! It has been fun seeing him grow and I have really enjoyed the quilts also!

  60. 62

    The mosaic is great, i’d get it printed just as it is!! P.S. Congrats on making it one year!

    Martie says:

    Congratulations! He’s just absolutely adorable. How wonderful that you captured his photo each month on a new quilt. I know it’s easy to get caught up being busy and forget to regularly record those precious times.

    Michelle says:

    So cute. I love the quilt in the last picture (with the bribery). Do you know what that pattern is called? Thanks.
