    Circles of Love for my 1st Great Grandchild

    When I was making the blocks for this quilt, I was just having fun with making the circles and appliqueing them on. When asked what I was making it for.....I really did not know, so figured I would keep it for myself. About the time I finished with 25 of these circle blocks, my Granddaughter called and told me that she was expecting and was due this October. Now I had a recipient....I used 12 of the blocks to make this baby quilt and made little pinwheels for the border. I will be flying to CA next month to give it to her :-)

    Awe, that is soooooo cute and the fact that you will be able to present it to her. Enjoy your trip and your little one. It's something how things always happen for a reason.

    That is beautiful! Love your colours, love the circle pinwheels and the entire quilt is just perfect for a baby. Great job.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Love the polka dots in the border - following through with the circle theme. Is that you in the picture? You are far too young to be a great-grandma! Enjoy it all.
