    My daughter's first son was born 3 months premature, her second son one month early and she has approx. 2 months to go with her little girl. She went to the doctor yesterday and has lost 7 pounds, she has been on anti-contraction weekly shots for over 3 months now so hopefully she will able to go close to full term. Just wish I was closer to help with the boys - she is my best friend in the world and I miss her dearly.

    I just found out I am going to be a great grandma for the first time so I have one to make also. Our granddaughter wants to wait until she finds out what she is having before she tells me what colors to use in the quilt. With 11 grandkids, I get to make my share of quilts but this one will be special.

    Sewing Grandma, My youngest daughter had her last child 8 years ago. She had many of the same problems your daughter is having. Was on bed rest and had baby 6 weeks early. I will be praying for a beautiful healthy baby girl to enrich the lives of your family.

    DEAR POLLY: THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. HOMEFULLY SHE WON'T HAVE TO HAVE BED REST, AS SHE HAS FOUR BOYS (2 ARE HER BOYFRIENDS, 8 AND 10) ALONG WITH HER SONS (6 AND 2) TO TAKE CARE OF. HE WORKS AT A STATE PRISON ON AFTERNOON SHIFT. HE PLANS TO TAKE FAMILY LEAVE FOR A MONTH WHEN THE BABY IS BORN. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

    I know how you feel, but it not for grands. as my name suggests I am into great neices and nephews that is. I solved the quandry of girl/boy and made quilts that the parents would like. ex. log cabin with cats for one and finished log cabin stars in red white blue for her sister.( Shower may 1.) Babies are infants for such a short time so I make the quilts in twin. I try to use bright colors that they will enjoy through elem school.

    Being a Grandma (or Grammy for me) is the greatest job in the world. As you can see from my avatar, they are the apple of my eye. This is number 4 grandson and only granddaughter has just turned 1

    Sometimes it's best to plan a quilt for the toddler age as they are not babies very long. I like to make one for a new baby and generally generic with greens and yellows. Then when the baby stage is over, I follow it with a boy/girl quilt with a theme fabric. The last boy one I made had race track fabric on the back. I hear he spends lots of time playing with his match box cars on that quilt. We are expecting our first 'great' grandchild soon. Looks like I'll need to start making lots of boy quilts as we have 2 daughters and 4 grand daughters. Leave it to the 3rd generation to start having the boys.

    Congratulations! We're in the same boat. Just found out my son and daughter in law are preggers! Went with her to first OB visit. Saw the baby via ultrasound and heard the heartbeat! Soooo awesome. Now I also get to start a baby quilt. Have to start with a non commital color scheme for now. Maybe all white and a very pale fairy frosts? What will be your first?

    Congratulations!! In the last 5 years, I've made 14 baby quilts, 7 of them for grandbabies, and 10 of them hand quilted. I am hoping for a few years of NO babies!!!! LOL

    Congrats to your family! Grandkids are the best. We have 2--one is 3 years old and the other is 10 months. My very first quilt was a baby quilt for the 10 month old girl when she was born. They didn't know the sex either, so the quilt had pinks, blues, greens, and yellows.
