This weekend Nicky and Patrick came down so we could go shopping for baby furniture. It was lots of fun....but my feet started complaining after about the 5th store! We did get lots of good ideas and I think she has made up her mind as to what she wants now. We did get a nice playpen that she will use for a bassinet the first couple of weeks that they will keep their new baby girl in their room with them. Then it will be great for traveling or taking to friends. They also got a baby monitor. Next weekend we'll get the car seat, stroller and crib. She is 6 months along now and is feeling the pressure to get the baby room ready.
While they were here we got the fabric for a baby quilt she saw in a Fons and Porter magazine from 2008 I think. She has wanted to make this one for quite some time. We got it cut out and she sewed the blocks and appliqued the hearts, stars and flowers. During the week she will square them up and be ready to sew the top together next weekend. She is even thinking of quilting it herself but is using minkie for the back so thinks maybe this one will go to a quilter.
It is fun to watch her fondle the fabrics as she picks out what she wants in her quilt. She absolutely loved the blue fabric....and the orange.....and the rose pink....and.......
What fun to have daughters who love quilts and even better that this one likes to make them too.
