There has been great excitement here this week as our beautiful grandson arrived healthy and well last Saturday night.

We have loved spending time with him having lots of cuddles and seeing how thrilled his parents are with his arrival.

The quilt was completed and labelled, ready for his arrival.

I kept the quilting simple and soft for the baby. I also found some fun fabric for the back that reflected the design of the front.

Love the way it all turned out.

Still have a big smile on my face.

    Hello Karen,

    A big hug to everyone. Nothing like a new baby to bring such happiness. The quilt is beautiful and I can just imagine him playing on it and cuddling up in it.

    Happy days.

    Congrats on your grandson! Hope all is well with you all. Love your quilt! It’s gorgeous, and I love the matching backing too. I go more and more for white (tone-on-tone) background fabrics, it really makes the other colors stand out – like your quilt.

  • Oh, yay! Congratulations on the new grandson and on a beautiful quilt. It just makes me smile to look at it. I know it will be a treasured part of his childhood.

  • Karen says:
