    Another DP9 done all out of my stash. I fussy cut all the focus blocks. It limited me as to how many I could use since I wanted all of them to lay the same way but I think it turned out pretty good. I had more blocks left but in trying to keep with sort of a pattern in laying it out those blocks would not fit. I will think of something to use them for.
    I am going to use either flannel or fleece for backing. The baby is still in the hospital so if I put a darker fabric as a backing they can use it over his incubator. If I don't hurry though he might be out of the incubator before I get it done. He is growing and gaining weight pretty fast now. He was 2lbs 7oz. at birth and lost down to 2.2. Now he is a tad over 3 lbs. And he is only 3 weeks old. He is a little trooper!!

    I hope he will like his quilt. This will be the first one he gets but I also have crib quilt ready to be quilted for him too.

    How about that royal blue in a flannel for the backing? That would be dark enough for an isolette cover.

    Congrats on the new grandson!!! :) I had a friend that had twins a while back and they were both 2 lbs. The had to stay in for about 4 weeks until they could get their weight up. They did great and your grandson will to.
    The quilt is wonderful. It's nice and bright....very eye catching for a baby. I'm sure it will be his favorite. :)

    Glad to hear good news about the wee one. His quilt is gorgeous. I would like to talk with you about this quilt and my little paper piecing project. Maybe we could work something out :D :D :D . I think I am ready with the pattern (Candlequilter Star) but would like someone to give it a test drive before I let it out.

    Thanks for sharing the picture and the great news,
    Sherryl

    Hi Sherryl...I will send you an e-mail. This little quilt was just a quickly put together quilt. Turned out kind of cute, I thought.

    I hope your Grandson does better and better each d ay. My friend Shirley started out at 2 lbs. You would never know it today. Her sister was the smallest and is now six feet tall, the Mother of five and hopes someday to have the joy of being Grandmother
