Here's pictures of the baby quilts I just recently finished for the new baby. I ordered 12 6 in square quilt pieces off etsy.com for the girl one. I just love the vintage looking floral prints! I used the pink solid on the back. I cut up two pillowcases I got for a dollar at the dollar store for the boy one. The yellow solid was just a remnant I had in my stash. The back of the boy quilt is larger rectangles of the blue patterned fabrics and the yellow. I didn't put batting in the middle. They are going to be good for a play mat on the floor, or a light covering for the baby this summer, or a blanket to put over the baby when I am nursing. I am happy with how they turned out, especially considering this was my first attempt at making a quilt. It was a lot of fun.
I am doing okay today. Not feeling great. Every day, I wake up thinking, "Maybe today's the day!" I sure hope so. I have been having contractions and cramping this afternoon. Maybe I'll take the boys for a walk outside. I am just so ready to have this baby and meet him or her!
