My little nephew Logan is such a peanut! Just look at him, along with my beautiful mother. I can imagine her holding each of her 8 children, and all of her 17 grandchildren as they came into the world in just this way.
My brother also has 4 step-children which are no-where-no-how ever considered as step, we accept them as full members of the family, and she would have gladly held each of them just like this if she had been around when they were born. Mom is a born mother-er!
My brother Mark is soon to become a Grandpa! His daughter (My niece Melissa) and her hubby are expecting their first baby. My mom is about to become a Great-Grandma for the first time! I dare say that Great-Auntie-Bonnie will continue making baby quilts for each new arrival as long as she can. I am amazed at how families grow, and the love grows with them!
Yesterday I finished the label on the baby quilt. This top has been waiting around for the next "boy" baby to be born into the family, but girl babies seem to be the norm in our family! My brother Mark has 4 girls and one son..with the son in the middle of the bunch.
My Sister Joy had one son, this was made after his arrival too, and then had 3 little girls all in a row....so this quilt sat while I made pink things!
My brother David had a baby girl...another pink quilt....and the blue quilt sat.
My Sister Mary, who is Logan's mama, has a son, Porter, and Porter got a different baby quilt when he was born. Porter was followed by a sister, Kenzie, and hers of course, was PINK!
Now Logan follows Kenzie, and this baby quilt, made with the left over blocks from my Blue Ridge Beauty quilt, goes to Logan!
Here is a pic of the quilting detail and the fun fabrics in it. I love combining little oddities in my scrap quilts.....some very traditional ones, and some fun novelty ones thrown in for something to look at.
And I'm running late! The dreaded insomnia troll came slinking by about 2:30am this morning, and I was up until about 4am when I finally fell back to sleep. Now I'm up, but needing to get ready to go meet my school friend Lori in Hickory! I'm excited! I'm nervous! We haven't seen each other in 30 years!
