    New granddaughter is due the first week of June, but the Baby Shower is this coming weekend. I wanted to share her quilts.

    I got carried away with this one and it's too big. It will be a nice spread on a toddler bed!

    :oops:

    So I made another :!:

    48 X 68 Fabric is non-flammable and from the Precious Moments collection.

    This one is made of quilters cotton and is as close as I can get to embracing the scrappy look. I love scrappy quilts but each time I try to make one, I want things symmetrical and matching. It's a flaw in "My" fabric :oops:

    These are really very cute!!! I am in the process now of making one for my nephew's new baby and it ended up 48 x 48...which is kind of big also I thought but she will be able to use it for a few years this way! I don't think there is a set size!! LOL

    Thanks Country Quilter, I really appreciate the positive feedback.

    I just got these done and one of nephews called to say they were expecting in September. I've been trying to work on some of my UFO's but I guess the galaxy keeps growing :!:

    All three are adorable! I think you did an awesome job on the scrappy Pooh! You're already spoiling grandbaby! She's one lucky baby! :D Make sure you get pictures of your granddaughter with her quilts.

    Chele, thanks so much. We're pretty sure that this will be the last grandchild and only the 2nd girl, so I don't want to pass up the chance to show her how much she is loved.

    I forgot to mention that I used warm and natural in all 3 quilts. Also, I asked at Hancocks the name of the Precious Moments non-flammable fabric. They said it is called "Grande Flannel", although it's not really like flannel. The right side of it has a very short nap and the wrong side feels like nylon tricot. It's kind of a B*#&% to work with but nothing is softer that I can find.

    :-)

    I think your quilts are wonderful! It is great to have a baby quilt that is "too big" (ha no such thing!). It can be a wonderful place to play on the floor with toys or outside on the grass.
    When I made my daughter's quilts I would make a few extra blocks and create a matching baby doll version. This size is actually perfect for a lap quilt when they are in the car seat and still tiny as it can be tucked in and then I would put another blanket over her. Now that she is older they look sweet in her baby doll cradle.

    I love them!! They are so special--and I'm jealous that the babies get 'em. :wink:
