EVERY BABY NEEDS A QUILT

..........and Jane is no exception.  Years ago, I bought this little book by Nancy Halvorsen, with the hope of having numerous grand babies to sew for.  "Build it and they will come" was my motto. 

It worked ; 0 )




The other day, I picked out these fabrics for Jane's quilt. Her room is mauve, so I thought this would be nice.  It's a mix of Benartex, Moda, and Michael Miller fabrics. I like how they all work together.

It's just a crib size, but there's lots of time yet for a big girl quilt.



On Sunday, Jane's Dad and Mom want to take me to lunch, and then I plan to spend the rest of the day sewing.
I think that would pretty much be the perfect Mother's day.

Happy Mother's Day to you.
