    Blue and Gray Baby Quilt

    Close friends were expecting their first grandchild and I made a quilt. The nursery was to be decorated in Navy blue, gray, and white. I tossed in a couple lighter blue blocks for a little interest. Both the mom and grandma got teary when they saw the quilt for the first time. I couldn't possibly have a better thank you than that. This is my first attempt at adding photos...hope it works. Thanks for looking.

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

    Thank you for all of your kind words. Once I got into this, I really liked the colors for a nursery. I didn't use a pattern which was pretty scary for me as I am not an experienced quilter. I have found a wonderful long arm quilter in my area (Lancaster County, PA) and I am so happy with her work. Several of the fabrics in the quilt have stars and we decided on a star theme for the quilt design. It has taken me 3 years, but I finally found how to post a photo.
    Thanks again.

    Absolutely love your quilt. I would've gotten teary eyed myself. My DGD's favorite colors are pink and gray. This is a great pattern. Gives me an idea! Thanks!

    You did good posting the picture and you did VERY good on the quilt. It's so good looking and will work when the child is older as well.

    The baby quilt is very nice, and it will go well with the colors of the room you described. That is great how much they loved it.

    Congratulations on your picture posting too.
