    Diamonds, love the Baby Magic Pattern. Perfect if you don't know if it will be a boy or girl.

    Congratulations Grandma To Be! :D I like to call it being in the "grandmotherly way" :lol: Nothing better than being a grandparent, I love ALL the benefits that go with it! :D The card trick block would be cute, as well as Diamonds suggestions, maybe you will have time to make more than one as Loretta suggested? A matching small one for the crib sized one for a dolly or teddy bear?

    Love the body bib! I will be making one of those for my 2yr old gs, he still loves to wear as much as he eats :lol: Maybe even bigger ones for the older grands to wear when they paint.... hmmmm

    Congratulations!! Better get quilting now, because once the baby gets here, your arms will be full cuddling that sweet little angel.

    Congrats on the Grandbaby, Being a Grandparent is great :P , You get to do all the fun stuff that you couldn't do with your own. I don't worry about spoiling my Grandson, after all that's what his Grandma is for :lol:

    Congatulations!!!! You're gonna love being a grandma, one thing that I wish I would have made for my little grandaughter (especially now that she's walking) are alot of the boo boo bunnies and bears. I use to have the pattern when her mommy was little, but couldn't find it again. They basically are a soft cloth, terry or flannel, wrapped around one of those plastic easter eggs that you put an ice cube in when ouchies happen, then tied into the shape of a bunny or bear with ribbon. The ears on the bunny are to wipe away the tears and the bunny belly is to make the boo boo better.

    Congradulations on becoming a Grandma. You will love it. I have three granddaughters and I love every moment of them. Does your new mom have any kind of theme for the nursery? I kept the quilt simple because it will get washed alot!!!

    Congratulations!

    I agree with keeping it simple. Anything "really" nice and the parents may be afraid to use it!

    My mom did bibs too, though not the full body kind, and I understand that that was the most appreciated gift my sister and SIL got.

    Congrats on becoming a grandma.
    Nothing better than holding a warm snuggley baby in your arms.

    I made my granddaughters flannel and chenille quilts. That wash up great. Six inch blocks, alternating flannel and chenille, no batting, just fleece for the backing.
    My daughters loved them!!!!
