When It Rains...It Pours!!


When you write a blog there are no secrets!  I am THRILLED to tell you that my middle daughter and her husband are expecting a BABY BOY in FEBRUARY...:o))) 
When asked what kind of a baby quilt she wanted, my DD picked a  low volume herringbone pattern...She didn't want bright, in your face fabric..so when I found Moda's 'Darling Little Dickens' fabric in Calgary I was THRILLED...this line of fabric has the sweetest prints...in soft subtle colours...


SO...I pulled out the pinks and set them aside...


...and whipped up some HST... and presto...herringbone pattern in the sweetest fabrics...EVER!
Yesterday I got four rows together before I called it a day!

 It's going to be the perfect little quilt top for a baby BOY!!


What to do with all those PINK fabrics?

Why put it into the BABY GIRL quilt of course!  My eldest daughter and her husband are expecting a BABY GIRL in JANUARY!!! (Insert happy dance here!!) Yup, when it rains, it pours...and this GRAMMY is DRIPPING with excitement!!   It's going to be a very exciting 2017 for our families, filled with babies...one of each!  How blessed am I!:o)))  And you know what BABIES means...QUILTS, lots and lots of quilts....!  Stay tuned...! :o)))

Have a fun Friday and Happy Stitching!~P

  13. Congratulations to both of your daughters and husbands. How fun to have cousins so close in age. I have a cousin thirteen months older than me and we are also January and February birthdays! Then I have another younger cousin in December. Maybe your third daughter will give you a surprise next year for December!

  15. Very sweet fabric, and what a great pattern. Who knew HSTs could look like herringbone. And from the look of it, quite easy to make. The grand babies will be well wrapped for the winter.

  22. That is a wonderful quilt for the baby and I am sure you are excited with two new babies, and one of each. I wish I had a girl to quilt for too, but I think I will just use up my fun fabrics to make some charity quilts.
