baby blankie

I put this quilt together for a baby girl that is set to  arrive any day now.  I didn't quilt this one, just used ties with some of that yummy cotton/hemp fleece for the back.  The bright asian print is from an old summer skirt of mine that was falling apart.  I'm happy to have used the fabric, it's so lovely .
Greta says she wants one just like it.  She is so demanding.  First I have to make Julien his quilt.  He's arriving tomorrow for a two week visit.  I hope to finish a quilt for him while he is here.  I made one for him when he was about 8 years old. He has since outgrown it.  I have promised him one for sometime now but have yet to get it done.  What an evil stepmother I am.  It's going to be a fun one to make, I'm looking forward to getting started.  I'm on a roll!

So gorgeous! Lucky baby girl, and lucky Julien and Greta... I can't wait to see the blankies you make them. I am keeping warm in mine. Give kisses to all my grandkids!
