    I'd wait so you can add DOB and Name. I even put weight, length and time born on mine. Quilt if adorable. Congrats! I envy you. I don't have any Grand Children. Luckily, my sister shares hers with me. ENJOY!!

    To my darling first grandchild. This was made in anticipation of your arrival. With all my love Grandma. And then the date of Mothers Day

    Congrats on your first Grandchild, one of life's rewards. I made my oldest Grandson a Beatrix Potter quilt, different fabric, didn't know his sex back in 1988. His Mom - DD has it put away for him.
    Very pretty quilt. I would wait.

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.
    I'm already researching the web for free patterns for all kinds of baby stuff I could make, and my daughter's not even showing yet (although her pants are getting tight!).

    I would do something along the lines of "For our first Grandchild. We loved before we met you"

    Congratulations!!!

    Gorgeous quilt! I'd put a regular label on the quilt only. I'm sure you'll be making more quilts when he/she gets here!
    Congrats!
    Blessings,

    I totally agree...it will let both your daughter and the baby (someday) know how much you are looking forward to his/her arrival. Enjoy! Oh...and the quilt is just beautiful!

    And I know how much enjoyment my daughter will get out of handling and looking at the quilt between now and delivery!

    I would lable the quilt and write in the book.
    Maybe something from a proud grandma to her first grandchild? And no I can't keep a secret!

    When my daughter was PG we called the babies names - ie Kamron was Pumpkin until he was born.... Keylynn was Rosebud until she was born. So if they are calling the baby something I would put that on the label to mom and ________
    Story time quilt. Beautiful little quilt and congrats grand kids are the best!

    Many Congratulations!!! My husband and I are not there yet - but our oldest daughter is getting married in July. :-)

    I think I would put a label on the quilt and write in the book, expressing your joy, excitement and anticipation for this new little life in your family!

    PS - of course, I'll keep it a secret!

As it was, the things I had were passed onto my first child. It is natural to give gifts before a baby is born, especially from Grammas, so I think you should celebrate the joy of the anticipation of this wonderful event without thinking, "Oh, maybe this baby won't survive." Be positive and enjoy being a pre-Gramma and just have a ball planning. This time you share with your children will be long-remembered. Just my opinion.
    I really appreciate your insights. It makes my decision about what to do much easier (since I have always had trouble waiting anyway!). My daughter and I are very close, and I think it would be a healing thing to have the quilt, even if something happened.

    Well, after making 3 labels AND sewing them on the quilt and ripping them off again, I finally have the label I want on the quilt. Now I just need to figure out the wording in the front of the book. Actually there's a space for "This book belongs to...." which I shall leave blank until the baby is born. And at the top of the page I shall write in something like......

    "To our precious little Bunnykin....we are holding you in our hearts until we can hold you in our arms. Mothers' Day 2011.
    Love from Grampa and Grammy"

    Thanks to ALL of you for all your great ideas, and kind wishes!!
