When I get in quilt magazines, after I’ve read through them cover to cover several times, I tear out the patterns I might want to make some day, stick them in page protector pockets and put them into a three ring binder. Humpty Dumpty appeared in the February, 1998 issue of McCalls Quilting and I loved it and knew I’d have to make it some day.
The ultrasound suggests that I’m having a granddaughter but I’m not going to go on a pink craze just yet. Humpty Dumpty will be just fine for Adelina or whatever boy name they may have chosen.
I made this pattern once for one of Chad’s teachers . . a 7th grade math teacher who was having a baby. Now I get to make it for my own grandbaby!
Next weekend is the quilt show in Abilene so I’ll check my black and white inventory and see if I need to do a little shopping.
I remember that pattern!!!! Scary thought that. sigh….
Hope you are going to put in a bit of lime green to give it some cheer. That’s a safe neutral color. 😉 AND perky too.
Please come to the show anyway you may find something you have to have. There will be 235 quilts this year and 27 vendors.

LOve it! Congratulations a girl or boy it is perfect!!! Although if ultrasound shows girl well ….I love the name they have chosen!! 🙂
Love the pattern ! But the girls name is so perfect, my granddaughter is Adelina Mae and she turned 3 on May 22. I’ve never seen or heard that name before or since. You’ll be the best grandmom!
Wow, congratulations, not sure how I missed the news that you are going to be a grandma but you must be thrilled.
What a cute pattern!!! It will be fine for girl or boy…..so that’s a good one to make!
