Korina's mom does beautiful quilting and my grandchildren have beautiful quilts that she has made for them. My mom quilts, she is turning 92 this year, so her quilting has slowed down a bit, but she is still at it. Well, I decided that my daughter Alicia's baby shouldn't be deprived of a quilt from his grandmother, even if I am not as good at it as the above mentioned quilters, so I figured that a baby quilt was a good place to start.
My mom recently gave me a quilt for the back of my couch to add color to my family room. Here it is:
Walmart sells collections of fat quarters that are already coordinated for you. The price is really great as well. The cute flannel set I found was under $8.00. My high school football player son Jacob was with me and he insisted we include a football print for his nephew. (He wants to have a football team consisting of all of his nephews one day.) I also threw in a few pieces from my own stash.
RED ALERT! I have to finish this quilt this week. This morning I was in my classroom at work when I got a call from my son-in-law Adrian. ALICIA'S WATER BROKE THIS MORNING! She is only 32 and a half weeks, they are keeping her in the hospital and holding her off a little longer since she still has fluid and the baby needs more time, but she will definitely be delivering no later than a week and 3 days. I will post the finished product soon! Hopefully a healthy, sweet baby will be wrapped in it!
