McKinley's Baby Quilts

These are the quilts for baby McKinley who will be joining our family in a couple of weeks, I had them all done so I took them to Kaitlyn's baby shower that we had at Kira's the end of August. The basket of goodies was from me and Kira, it is her diaper bag loaded with everything she will need. You can't see the quilt very well, it's sticking out the corner of the basket, it all matches, from bibs, to burbies, her wipe case, receiving blanket to clothes, and her hooter hider(a.k.a. nursing cover-up). I've made everything to coordinate with her diaper bag. I'll post a picture of it later when McKinley is all wrapped up in it, how's that? This quilt is from the Strawberry Lemonade fabric line. Kaitlyn liked this one because it is so bright and cheerful, now all the baby needs it a Strawberry Shortcake doll!
This quilt is one of my favorites, it has the cutest daisies quilted into it. The browns and blues in it just match McKinley's carseat and stroller. I was cutting this one out to take with me to work on up to Girl's Camp while we were camp hosting and Kaitlyn was here that day and she put her dibs on it. I have several quilts that need to be dubbed, their stacking up in the closet!! I think I have a problem don't you? Oh well that won't stop me from sewing, I'll have more grandkids to spoil! I hate to admit it but there are still two more quilts in the works for this baby, one that just needs to be bound and the other may not get completed at all, it's a little more challenging than I had anticipated it to be, we'll see. I'm sure McKinley will be snug as a bug in her others if it dosen't get finished. I need to get started on Jacob's quilts so he doesn't think I don't "lub" him anymore, and I certianly don't want him to be chilly this winter in Idaho. I love sharing.

They are great. I remember seeing that Strawberry Lemonaid line in the fabric store. I love it.

I don't think this baby is going to be lacking anything. Nice way to come into the world!
