    Our DS and DIL presented us with a new boy 6 weeks early. He's doing fine and off the respirator but still has feeding tubes. G'ma kicked into high gear and made this little quilt for him. I read that red and black are good colors for babies so started with bandana fabric on the back (no pic) and proceeded to make an overall Sam. The red plaid that corners off the diamond is from his GGpa's shirt who passed a month ago. The border is an Old McDonald print, but in our world "Grandpa has a farm, EIEIO."

    Had 2 boys in the NICU. Both doing beautifully. PM me if you have any NICU questions. Our primary nurse actually taped black and white photos to the isolette for my first son. Major color contrast is great for them. We also laminated the photos so they wouldn't be destroyed (17.5 week stay in NICU with one boy, 3 week stay with second son). Label quilt very well if brought into the hospital.

    Cute quilt!

    Very cute! I think I would just hang on to it until the little guy makes it home. It would be awful to get it lost in the hospital.

    What a way to find out I have a new cousin. Congrats on being a grandma again.
