LOVE the quilting!

Got my baby quilt back from my quilter and am so SO happy with the quilting she did on it!

As you can see, she quilted every inch on it.  Just what I love. 

Here's the front.  Baby Boy will be here December 29th.  I can hardly wait to hold him!  One of my favorite blocks in this quilt is the little suit in the middle.  My oldest sons wore similar suits one year for Easter Sunday.  

Here is a picture of my little ones with my mom wearing their suits.  She was battling cancer at the time and we had flown back and forth from Texas to California to visit with her as much as we could that year.  She would lose her battle early the next year in February.  The boys are 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 in this picture.  I love these little suits!  It's funny to look at this picture and notice a bean bag chair....I certainly don't remember growing up with that and am now wondering why in the world my parents would have one!

Have to also mention that the daddy of this newest grandbaby is my oldest son in this picture!  Yes...they do grow up!

The pattern is Benji's Pockets by Acorn Quilt & Gift Company.  You can find it here.  It's on sale!

Great Granny Quilt

This quilt pattern can be found on Lori Holt's Great Granny Quilt Along page.  I love when designers are happy to freely share their talents with others!

I used up every bit of fabric I had left over from my Dresden Quilt that is hanging on the wall for the Great Granny quilt.  I wish I had had more of it, I think it is called Maypole.  I was hoping to make the quilt into a queen for my own bed but had just enough jelly roll strips to make 24 blocks.

So nice to make a quilt out of scraps from my stash!
