    I finished the baby quilt for my niece and got it ready to go. Then her cousin(male) asked if I was going to the shower next(last?) Sunday. I said I didn't know, so far I wasn't invited. So far I didn't receive an invation, so I don't know if he got the days mixed up or they held the shower and I wasn't invited. Anyway...here are pictures of the quilt. Thought someone might like it besides me. Oh..the husband likes to pick out the backings for the baby quilts I make for the kids. It's his contrabution to the new baby.

    Did just loopy free motion stiching

    This is lovely and so fun and whimsical. Your DH does a great job picking backs as well. Your work is beautiful.

    What a neat baby quilt. I love your circles and the backing is just perfect. Odd about the shower thing though :?

    Really cute quilt back and front. Isn't it nice when the husband takes an interest in your hobby?

    What a cute quilt! I've never seen that design. Did you make it up or was it from a pattern?

    If it were me, I'd just call her up and ask if you're invited. Maybe there was a mix up, or maybe she just overlooked you (though I hope not) but surely she won't mind if you come?

    and maybe there's one shower that's more friends and another that's more family? That happens around here. Only the grandmothers are invited to both. The reason is to not have someone be expected to show up with more than one gift.

    You and your DH make a great team. I love it.

    If you weren't invited, it must have been an accident. If I had an auntie as talented as you are, she'd be at the top of my list. :0)

    If you don't get invited to the shower don't take it personally, maybe it was put on by some of her friends and they didn't know all the family members. Take advantage of the situation and deliver it when you can have your niece and the baby all to yourself !

    That is one adorable baby quilt! My favorite color combos...pink and purple. My step-daughter is expecting in June...she told her dad to hint to me that if she has a girl she doesn't really want pink anything, so if I make a quilt for the baby she'd like it in shades of purple...gladly!
