    Baby shower

    This past weekend we had my daughter's baby shower. Instead of wrapping the quilts, we hung them as part of the decorations. It was a fun day! Grandson due in June!

    Congratulations on the expected arrival of your grandson. Love all the quilts. You and the rest of the family will have such fun naming all the animals in the quilts.

    the animals sure are cute - and that little fella will probably name each of those animals... but the quilt with the arrows is great. I've never seen one like that before. And its great for a little boy (my little boy would have love it ha ha)

    Great looking quilts and what a creative way to decorate. Then she gets to take them home and wait for the little one to arrive. Congratulations to you and your daughter.

    Great quilts! I have the Forest pattern but was waiting my my two baby granddaughters to get a little older.

    My daughter hung a "clothesline" of her baby clothes on the wall at her shower. So cute.

    Beautiful quilts. Great decorating ideas.

    I have two baby quilts to make. One is a boy due in July. We don't know about the second one, they will have a gender reveal this summer, due in Sept. or Oct. They will be Great Grandbabies. #5 and #6.

    The arrow is also by Elizabeth Hartman. She writes the best patterns!

    Congratulations on the anticipated arrival of your grandson! You were way ahead of schedule with the quilts LOL I am making Fancy Forest and if you have time would love a pic of how you quilted it. I was thinking of a tree bark look with wavy lines and occasional knots, but would love to see your creative take. You always do such beautiful work.

    All cute quilts. Now the baby is set. One will be in wash now and again and can switch which quilt to use next.

    So adorable! Happy for you! Be sure to post a picture of the baby with quilts when the time comes.

    That's exactly what I did. A Woodburn pattern.
