It’s a girl!!

While we were away we got the exciting news that my daughter’s best friend gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl!  Lisa, the baby’s mom, was like another member of the family as the girls were best buddies from Grade Six on..and what’s been really nice is that the girls have remained close all these years.

So this morning I went to my quilt stash and pulled out this quilt top…


Does this quilt not scream out LITTLE GIRL!!


So it was off to the nearest fabric store for some nice soft flannel for backing…

Oh..and then I saw these…aren’t they adorable?


Look at how teeny, tiny they are….P1070679

These little bibs were so sweet…and there are THREE of them! P1070680

Did I mention that little Isabelle already has a head full of hair…


Sunflowers and bumble bees…and little girls…perfect!


Happy ‘Bee’ing me!


So, hopefully, if all goes well, I will be busy quilting this sweet little quilt for a sweet little baby!!  One things for sure, Auntie P has GOT to stay out of the baby department!!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!

That's so fun. When my friends started having babies, my mom practically sent them baby showers in a box! I can tell you are looking forward to being a Grandma!

I thought I was bad as a first time Grandma, but I see you have the same problem in the baby department Paulette!

LOL! Perfect quilt for a baby girl, and I love all the extras. I have a friend who is expecting her first grandDAUGHTER, and she has been going nuts buying girly stuff!
