babies and their quilts...

i have no babies... but there are babies in my life...

this is the story of "my" babies and their quilts

first there was elijah... his mom is in love with classic pooh so this was easy... he ended up with two quilts... one simple one was made before he was born from the book happy hour...

here he is napping underneath it...

and crying on it...
after he was born i made this one... it has photos of him and our family signed it when he was 3 months old... elijah is my nephew and this quilt has even more of a special meaning now because my grandfather recently passed away and his signature is on it... i'm sure elijah will treasure this one day...

elijah is growing fast and isn't a baby anymore... but he likes my quilts... getting pillows thrown at him... and getting his picture taken over and over again by my brother...

and the came loren... it took a long time to figure out what to do for loren... loren's mom likes things simple and modern... his room is very neutral with dark wood furniture... what to do...

here he is with his big sister... they share a room so no pink... no blue... just neutral...
i found my focus fabric... grabbed some patterns... and asked his mom what she wanted... and here is the start of his quilt... all cut and ready to be sewn together... it is actually the girl quilt from camille's baby mine pattern... minus the middle section... just a simple quilt for my little loren...
i love my babies!

Wow! Those are awesome quilts. I'm not usually a fan of pictures on quilts, but I LOVE that cute keepsake quilt you made for Elijah. And I've always loved the Winsome Baby quilts -- I have that book tucked into my virtual grandbaby hope chest for someday!
