Grandson quilt

Hello! We are expecting a grandson in mid-September! I have been working on a quilt for his room. My daughter has read many studies about how to stimulate little babies minds and senses and has decided to decorate his room in bright colors. Together, we made a pinwheel mobile to hang over his crib. We went to PaperSource up and picked out some bright colored papers, then went back to her house and started cutting them out. I had a die for the smaller pinwheels, but we had to cut the larger ones out by hand. She found the idea and pattern here on the web. This is the view of his mobile from inside his crib. So colorful!

 She is using these madras curtains from Pottery Barn in his room. I think his mobile and quilt will match perfectly!

Then, to keep the bright colors and pinwheels going, I made this pinwheel quilt for his room. I am very pleased with the results - I hope she will be too.
 Here is a picture of the label on the back of the quilt. It was made with a Papertrey stamp set "Teach and Inspire" and some Photoshop magic.

This is the baby crib in my house where our grandkids sleep when they come over. I made the quilt on the wall when I was pregnant with my daughter - 31 years ago! The little mobile was given to me at a baby shower for her.

Then, because every little baby has to have a little blanky to love, I made him a little ribbon blanky using Cat in the Hat Minkee fabric. I purchased the kit for this little blanky from Quilting Adventures in Richmond.

  1. After seeing a picture of the quilt label on the forum, I had to come over and see the actual quilt and I'm so glad that I did. It is wonderful, a gift of the heart to be treasured always. I read a few other posts to learn that William is continuing to grow and is on his way to becoming that mighty oak. My prayers to you and your family.
