Blankets and Crates and Psychotic Fabric

Evelyn took a little snooze on the Patriotic Quilt, this afternoon. She is just so darn cute.

That girl is a walking smile!

Look past Evelyn and what do you see? Yup - there's Baby Pearl's bedroom crate! We are definitely getting set up for the little one.

I raided my stash, pulled out a bunch of minkee fabric and whipped together some additional blankets for the baby. I didn't put in any batting and don't plan to actually quilt them. These are just so soft and I had them on hand.

And it is not like I have any grandbabies to quilt for!!!

Ahem, as I was saying...

Pink blankets downstairs, blue upstairs. No real reason.

Evelyn helped me to bring up two of our crates. One is in the master bedroom (where I am sure I will be spending some time sleeping on the floor next to it from time to time in the coming weeks).

The other is in the living room.

Do you like that pink?

Recall the Amish Nine Patch?

Here is what I am using for backing. I have been looking for just the right project to use it on. Let's be candid - it would HAVE to be just the right project for this fabric to not look psychotic.

Off to eat some cheetoes!!

You know what they say--cut it into small enough pieces and no fabric is ugly--probably not psychotic, either!

How many more days til Pearl comes home?

She looks excited about the new baby. Be sure to give her a lot of extra attention. Love the quilt too!

Thank you for your comment. You are so right, there are too many girls craving for attention anyway they can get it.
