Dear baby... if you're a girl...

Pin It ...then this will be your quilt.

Finished if you're a girl quilt

And if you are a girl, I will love watching you work to hold your head up, and look at those stars...

Finished if you're a girl quilt

And I will love seeing you snuggle in all its softness.

Finished if you're a girl quilt

And drag it all around the house (your big brother is getting a head start - you might have to fight him off).


I loved making this for you little one... if it is yours 
(and if you're a boy, I'm keeping it, because I love it). 
Your daddy is sure you're a boy... just as sure as I was about your brother...

We've made it to the final trimester!  And even though it's still not really real to me that there will actually be another kiddo in our house, you are showing proof of yourself. :)  
(Here's what your brother looked like at week 26)

________________________________

Specs for my bloggy friends - 

Pattern: Swoon by Thimble Blossoms (love this pattern)
Fabric: Modern Meadow with City Weekend, Farmdale with Hideaway, Katie Jump Rope with DS quilts, and Meadowsweet 2 with Sunkissed.  
Binding: DS quilts tile

Quilting (my favorite I've done so far) - a cross hatch at one inch intervals.  I didn't plan it, but it makes an almost perfect grid all over the whole quilt -- evenly dividing the blocks and the quadrants... that was a happy, unplanned coincidence.

Jamie said...

Ok so since I made the comment about him being shirtless I decided to really look back and see if that's even true and it isn't!!! But then I looked up at your header and I thought "So THAT'S why I thought that!" I'm a dork. Pay no attention to me!

I have been planning to do exactly the same, as I wanted a bit smaller than the 9 Block.
Seeing this makes me so happy that it will look great!
