Baby quilts done!


Whew! I had these baby quilts mostly done for the longest time--including the one for my newest grandson, but didn't have labels on them. I'm a big proponent of labels, so won't let them out of the house or count them as done until a label is on it.
The first quilt is for a client of my husbands who just loves quilts. He and his wife go to quilt shows just to look at the quilts! Imagine that! So I thought I'd be nice and make them a quilt for their new little son.

This is for my grandson, my oldest granddaughter made all the center blocks for this quilt. She was so cute, I was helping her with ideas of what to put inside the blocks and we were running out of ideas. She looked at me and told me to look around the room and just THINK of what we see. What a smart little 5 year old! And to think I'm not even biased! :)

Oops, I just let 2 quilts out the door without labels - good for you for sticking to your guns and making sure they are labeled for the future. The kids quilts are too cute. Got to start thinking about fabric crayons... I see lots of possibilities!

Cheers!

Such a great idea!

That's the kind of quilt that the family will treasure for years to come. Can't you see your grandson going off to college with this one? :)
