Baby Quilts

In December 2012, I made a couple of baby quilts. I didn't want to show them until the babies arrived.   As of today the second one should be born.  Here are some pictures of the Moms on the day we delivered the quilts to them (at their workplace no less!)


I got smiles and hugs that night.  Last night I saw one of them again and got another hug. (The other was in the hospital - waiting for delivery.) I know that both of these babies will get lots of love.  That makes me happy!  Ha ha, I am claiming "uncle" status.

I like your quilts! They are bright and colorful.

I am currently cutting out pieces to make Kylies Kites, an Eleanor Burns pattern I bought at the Quilt show last year. I could have used a 5" charm pack but I decided to use scraps instead. Our quilting group always has left-over scraps that need to be used in someway. Since I am using scraps I may have to struggle to make the colors balance -- I am not really a random person and I do like things to match but...I also want to use up these scraps.

Happy New Year!

Who wouldn't be excited to get those quilts. I bet they will be favorites for a long time to come.
