    non traditional baby quilts

    for my friends newest baby and the not forgotten big brother (didn't want him to feel left out) Great way to use up some scraps. Figure this way they could be similar for both boys.

    I absolutely adore the colors on both quilts! Blue and orange is such a fun combo.

    Good idea to include older brother. I give to siblings too. Don't want them to feel left out
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Very pretty and colorful. I always remembered the older one too. With Grandkids building memories is very important.

    These are awesome. And, very very special. It's an awesome welcome to Baby and (special) for Big brother. I hope they will be well received.

    She loved them and I had fun quilting them. Did very utilitarian stitching so they would be sturdy and last. Want them to use them and drag them all over the house. :-))
