    Baby Quilt Take 2!

    I don’t usually give my baby quilts at the showers- too much "oohing and aching" 🙂- but give them to Mom later. But I went to the shower of a sweet young friend and thought "well, pooh!" when she opened a gift with a beautiful Mommy and Me quilt- the same pattern I had almost finished for her. Since I had already invested the $$ for fabric, etc, on the quilt I was making her, I dug around to see what I had in my stash and found a charm pack that was a Missouri Star daily deal. Put with other fabric that I already had, made this at no additional cost. Oh, well, not what I had planned, but mama will still be thrilled!

    "ooh and ah!" this is so sweet and so simple! but it is embarrassing - there are so few quilters in the world. Glad you had the warning at the shower before you made your gift!!!

    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I like the color combos in your quilt...and the dot fabric for the name. Simply beautiful!

    It is a wonderful and colorful baby quilt...luckily you had a back up plan. Nicely done.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Goo save. But if he had gotten duplicates, what the heck. I’d have used them both!

    That's precious, as is her name. Two of my great-nieces are Ella.
