I'm sooo excited about my NEW PROJECT!!
I have finally started work on my Mommy Quilt!! This quilt will be made from blocks with each child's newborn footprints with name and birthdate PLUS leftover blocks from each of their quilts (Sonshine's, Gator's and Sugars') PLUS borders and blocks made from the curtains and cribskirt of the nursery PLUS the 9 patch bumper pad cover I made. This, friends is a memory quilt. I have FINALLY decided on a layout for the quilt that I'm happy with, I have washed all the fabric, I've traced out 2 of the footprint blocks for embroidering, and de-covered the bumper pad and 3 pillows so that the covers can be used in the quilt. Folks this is gonna be one AWESOME quilt! I've decided to back it in flannel for extra snuggliness. :-)
