Quilts for the Babies
I am getting ready for two new grandchildren. Mary's baby is due December 16th and Gretel's is due February 27th. I have been knitting and sewing up a storm. I finished the quilts for each of the babies. Spike's (Mary's baby)has a jungle nursery theme and therefore the jungle theme quilt. The design came from a book called "Rock-a-Bye Quilts and originally had cows jumping over the moon. Mary chose the brighter colors and I found wall stickers from the Dollar Tree that I copied for the animals. I made the polka dot quilt for Heshimu (Gretel's baby.) It's design directly from "Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting" May/June 2011.
