some meandering last week & babies galore

 This baby quilt was pieced flannels, front and back:
So soft and cuddly.  It finished at about 45 by 60 inches.
I love how the quilting shows so well, and it was
another great finish by Jackie.
For myself, I've started to work on a few baby quilts
for gifts I know I have coming..
  1. for a boy due anytime
  2. for a little bundle of joy due now, but the parents have chosen not to know the sex of the baby beforehand, so I'm doing it eye-spy style and not going to layer and quilt until the baby arrives, then I can add a gender-specific backing.
  3. due May and I haven't heard the sex yet
  4. due in August and is a boy
  5. and it seems like I'm forgetting one, so I may just make another of the #2 quilt to have on hand.
So, choosing, pressing, and cutting fabrics has started!

Happy Monday and hope you have a
great, stitching week!


  1. Love this one, front and back. I love a pieced (aka interesting) backing. Five upcoming baby quilts. Seriously?? There must be something in the water in Ohio!

  2. Lots of babies in the works. Don't drink the water! Do you remember people saying that?


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
