It's a Baby


I am going to be a grandma. How about that. I have known for a few weeks now but had to wait until I had the okay to post the news on my blog. Our daughter is going to make us grandparents. We certainly are excited about this.
This is a not so good picture of a baby blanket I made in 1998. This is when I first started quilting so the quilt is not made all that well. I bought the squares while in Montana the summer before and embroidered them. Leslee decided she wanted this baby blanket and asked me to keep it for her. I was beginning to think I was never going to be able to give it to her. Now 10 years later, in September, I will have a grandbaby to wrap in this blanket.
This won't be the only special blanket made for this baby. I have an idea or two in mind and the baby's father, well his mom is quilter also and I am sure she has some ideas in mind. This baby will have plenty of quilts, lucky little one.
I will try to get a better picture of the quilt to share but this is it for now.
I am still sewing together the snails trails for SITP. I am getting bored with it, keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end. Well, back to the machine, the sooner I get the blocks sewn together the sooner I can get the quilt top done.
Have a good evening. Dot

Perhaps you can make a few crib quilts and then start on the single bed ones and the graduation quilt, get a head start! Sounds like this baby will be greatly enjoyed.
