    I'd call this "The First Baby Quilt" and have it ready to wrap him/her in to come home from the hospital. Then when you know the gender, you can make a pink/purple with ruffled edges or a boy quilt.... or 3, 4, 5, 6 or more! Grands are SOOOOO much fun to make quilts for!!!!!

    give it now, reserve label till you know name, birthdate, etc. Oh, and congratulations. I'll tell you what a wise lady told me when I was expecting my first grandchild: You just thought you loved your own children, your love for this grandchild cannot be expressed.

    I think the label could say 'with love for my first grandchild' Adding the label later is ok too. I made two quilts before I even knew to make a label and had to retrieve them :-) Congratulations to you and to the new parents!

    So happy for you! Became a grandmother August of 2009 and now my fourth is on the way. Do what you want about writing, but it doesn't hurt if you go ahead and write now. The baby will just know that he/she was loved from before they were born. Being a grandmother is the best. I just wish I had already known how to quilt. Your quilt is lovely.

    Beautiful baby quilt. I have grandchildren, I am happy that you are going to be a grandmother also. There is nothing like it.

    LOL Congratulations .. when all 3 of my grands were born (all girls!)I put on it to Angelbaby with love Grandma with my last name(so that when they get older they know which grandmother gave it to them). I call each one of my grands my angels and they drag out the books for me to read when I am over at their house. Never once has any of the 3 asked me why I wrote Angelbaby on anything. Sometimes I will number things for them and they think that is cool .. Angelbaby1 etc..

    This isn't regarding the quilt, but when my first grandchild was on the way, I bought books for him - every once in awhile - and on the inside front cover, I wrote him a letter about what was happening that day, how I was feeling about being a gramma for the first time, how much I looked forward to seeing him, etc. It was a treasure for him in later years - I got to hold him right after birth and we bonded - SOOOO special. I missed that with the other three.

    So funny. Anyway I think you should do what your heart tells you. I am so very happy for you and your family. I would probably give it now and then label it later. Just my thoughts. Keep us posted.:):):)

    Thanks so much for sharing that with me....gives me some ideas of how I can "make memories" even before he/she is here.

    i would wait until he/she is born
    then it will be special for them - when you put the label on and sign the book
    because I am sure you will have more Grandbabies and you will want them all to have their own special gifts from you too
    believe me it won't take you long to add a special label and sign the book!!!
    you are going to absolutely love being a Grandma!!

    Congratulations. We just had our first the 16th of Nov. My feet haven't touched the ground yet. He is perfect, of course. Also about a month ago, our son found out they are pregnant. She was told she would never have a child. They are in their mid 30's. It is a girl. We are over the moon. I know you are probably like me and have been waiting for this most of your life. It took me over 3 yrs to get pregnant so for a long while I thought I would never to able to be a Grandmother. People will tell you there is nothing like it but it is even so much more than that. There aren't words for it. So happy for you. Warning, you want to be making them something every minute you aren't with them.
