    Chevron Baby Quilt

    My stepdaughter asked for grey and white chevrons, navy and elephants. I gave it to her at her shower today and I think I nailed it. The back is flannel. This is grandchild #5 between my DHs two daughters, and they have never really appreciated the quilts I made for them. Let me say I never saw much of them again. Lately the relationships have been better, and I think this one went over well. For my DHs sake, I hope so.

    A very nice and very attractive. It is just perfect for the parameters that the new mom wanted. It was nice for you to go the extra mile to do something that fit her plans. Family relations can be a bit difficult but moms and grandmas just need to keep trying to portray positive feelings.

    It is just a basic meandering stipple. Much more than that or SID and it goes to a longarmer ...

    Being a stepmom/grandmother can be difficult, but as "they" say, "You are responsible only for the effort, not the outcome." It sounds like your heart has been in the right place. Maybe the situation just needs some time, but if it never works out, it wasn't your fault, and your DH will know it.

    Adorable quilt, by the way.

    I agree... sometimes we have to be the bigger person to overcome some of the obstacles. Maybe the fact that she actually asked you to make a quilt is a step in the positive direction.

    I love your Chevron quilt and your wonderful placement of fabric! I hope she does too.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Gorgeous! What a lucky baby! Not only will he/she have a beautiful quilt, but also a thoughtful and wise Grandma!

    Love chevrons! Grays are so popular right now, and I have loved navy forever. Good job Grandma! It's just so hard to have to second guess in situations with the steps--- There, doing it...It's a hard row to hoe.
