in anticipation...

I've been very busy quilting lately. My sister-in-law is due to have her baby in the next couple of weeks, so it was my duty to make the quilt, curtains, boppy cover, and little quilt for her carrier. It's been so much fun! I finished the top yesterday. I need to get it quilted, but plan to put it on the frame and use the Grand Quilter as I'm not a huge fan of rolling it up and trying to quilt it on my machine. I have quilt guild on saturday, so I'm excited to take what I have done along. Other than that, I've been busy doing my "doodle stitching" is so much fun! The book is awesome, I recommend it to everyone!!

I had won a pattern at Closeline Club, so I used that pattern to make this quilt. It only requires 8 fat quarters, and then of course border and backing. It was a real fun and easy quilt to make!

My sister-in-law lives on a ranch. They don't know if they are having a boy or a girl, so I used Robert Kaufman's The Cow Says Moo fabric.

I thought I would throw in a pic of my little guy. He is growing in leaps and bounds daily! I can't believe he is already 10 weeks old. Where have the days gone? He did quite well with his 2 month shots and is now up to 12 pounds. Each and every day I see his personality come out. What a character!

Yes, that is the same fabric as mine!!! Honestly I noticed this when you first posted this and wrote a very elaborate comment INSIDE MY HEAD!!! I am so sorry, I can't believe I didn't comment in real life! Anyway, I absolutely adore this baby quilt. I have been using the polka dot fabric in a quilt for Sydney's soon to be bed (a new big-girl bed!). Its all stripes and polka dots - very wild!
