Traditional, but oh well....

Here is my latest project - a baby quilt! A friend from work who used to work for me just had her first baby - a little girl! So it was time to start cranking out a baby quilt. I decided to go very traditional in style and colors for her - didn't it turn out cute!

Wish you could see it a bit better, it was so sunny out the color washed right out! I have large pink polka dot material and small pink polka dots! The back is in a pink and white plaid flannel - not to get this puppy pinned and quilted!

And speaking of puppies - little Chloe got the snip, snip today. Her foster mom sent me an email and said she is doing ok, she will pick her up tomorrow afternoon from the vet. Only 4 more days and Chloe comes home with us! I'm starting to wonder if maybe I"m more excited than Emily! But I did hear words out of Emily's mouth I thought I would never hear from her the other night - "Mom, do you need help with the dishes before I call my friends"! I about fainted! She (Emily) has been on her very best behavior!

Looks like a quilt for a little lady! How will you quilt it? Sounds like you've been having a wonderful summer.

It is sooo pretty! The girly girl in me loves pink and sweet! And how smart to use flannel for the back -- that will make it even more soft and snuggly.

I like baby quilts that are made to be used and loved - the flannel is a great idea!

Looking forward to seeing pix of your new dog at home!

Oh Dawn, you know how I love 2 color quilts! I am now hooked on making a pink and white one. Becky bought an antique pink and white quilt in Liberty. Great job!

I'm so happy Emily and you convinced dad that Chloe needs you, and you need Chloe! Can't wait to hear the "stories" that will come! Hee Hee!

Nice baby quilt, perfect for a girl!
