oh baby, baby.

09 August 2012

for baby natalie.
so remember how i said it was the year of the babies?!?!
well i've been making baby quilts left & right it seems.
and since that post ... my baby sister announced she's preggers and is expecting at christmas!!!

oh baby, baby.
here is baby quilt #2 out of the 4 i need to make.
{where's a pic of baby quilt #1?!?! i forgot to take a pic. lame, i know.}

BUT this quilt is SUPER special.
not because i made it. or because of the fabrics. or because of the pattern.
it's because the baby it's for has already taken up a huge place in my heart.

the lovely lady holding the quilt is my niece, ashleigh.
behind that quilt in that lovely lady's belly, is my great niece, natalie rae.
{and the fella in background is nate, ash's manly man and miss nattie's daddy.}

i am SO excited to be a great aunt!!!
and for miss lindsey to have a bff for life!!!
win/win.

miss natalie is expected to be here next month. {around my 30th birthday.}
and don't worry, i'll post pics of her all wrapped up in her quilt.
i'm sure it'll make everyone's wombs quiver.
you're welcome.

quilt stats:
pattern = my scruffily pattern for moda bake shop {but i made the blocks offset & wonky}
size = 40" x 40"
fabric = yard sale by dear stella AND pure elements by art gallery

It is most definitely the year of the baby. There are four ladies in my office and three more down the hall who are or have recently been pregnant. There are also several friends/friends of friends who are pregnant as well.

I'm just praying that this will be the year for us as well. I would love to make a baby quilt (as beautiful as the ones that you make) for our own little one.

Please keep us and all the new or soon to be mothers in your prayers.

Love, love, love the color combination! I know a lot of women that are expecting this year as well. I love making baby quilts... so I've been quilting away :) Me and my friends were joking that there is either something in the water or it must be a "50 Shades of Grey" baby boom. Lol.
