    Quilts and baby shower

    The quilts went over great,and the green one matches perfectly with the little Johnboat cradle my son in laws dad made for the baby! Its a little John boat with anchors on the ends and bobbers and the whole works. Perfect for a littl fisherman to be!!!!

    It matches the cradle perfectly! Did you see the colour before you did the quilt? What great gifts!

    That one quilt you made is perfect. Love how they posed the teddy bear fishing wrapped up in your quilt. I have never seen anything like that cradle before, it's adorable.

    They're both really beautiful and original. Love the colors and the mom and dad-to-be look so happy. Do post a photo of the new baby with the quilts!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
