Baby quilts

This is the first baby quilt I made.  I made this for my first grandchild soon after I started quilting.  I didn't take pictures of my quilts when I made them, so I had to search them down to photograph them.  This one looks well loved.  I quilted baby footprints in the large yellow block with my DSM.  Kole's mom picked out the fabric.  The prints were Winnie the Pooh.  8/9/2002
 Then came Kamille's baby quilt.  I made two identical quilts because I bought the fabric for a larger quilt and loved it so much.  These are the only two quilts I put ruffles around.  I may try again, now that there are directions on how to do it on the internet.  When I made them I just winged it.  3/22/2006

Elijah's quilt is one that I made twice also.  I made the first one for a niece's baby and Elijah's mom liked it and wanted it for her baby too.  I didn't get pictures of either one and will have to get a picture of it when I see it again.  10/10/2006  Update-found the picture of Elijah's-already loved.

Ryleigh's quilt was next.  I found this adorable children's fabric that I wasn't sure how to use, but knew I wanted to use it for her quilt.  This is what I finally came up with.  9/15/2007  
Brandon's quilt was made with fabric I ordered after seeing this quilt in a magazine.  They are pages for a book made into a quilt. 1/30/ 2009
I just wanted to make Oliver a sail boat quilt and searched high and low for a pattern I wanted to use.  Then I had to cut it down in size and search for the shirting for the sails.  At the shower where it was given to mom to be, I discovered that the nursery theme was sailboats!  Serendipitous!  8/7/2008

I never got a picture of Kamille's quilt above, but this one is actually Madison's.  8/24/2009
This is Caius's quilt.  (They decided to call him Josiah!  Whew!  Easier for Grandma to say.)  He isn't here yet but we are expecting him the end of August 2013.  This is Mod Pop that mom and grandma fell in love with the colors.   

Here are some random quilts that I made for nieces and friends babies.  I sure wish I had thought to take pictures of all of them along the way.

You've come a long way, baby! I have to say the Mod Pop is my fave. Love the colours in that one and the quilting is such a compliment to the design! Great job on all, Grandma!
