Something for Baby!

This cute little quilt belongs to baby boy Mitchell. We are just counting down the days now until he will be able to use all these quilts. This one is so bright and whimsical. It reminds me of a three ring circus almost. Kaitlyn had this fabric picked out when we started making quilts for baby number one. At the time she didn't know she was having a girl and she thought this would work better for a boy. So it has been sitting in the closet for two years waiting for the right little one. This is some of an older line from Michael Miller sashed together with Amy Butler's kiwi green solid. It's another pattern found in a magazine, a Fons and Porter I believe.
What do you do when you don't have enough backing fabric? Well, you get creative and use up some of the leftovers and put borders at each end.
Again the quilting was done by Alli of My Strandz. Didn't she do an amazing job?
Here is our little mother to be again! Look at that cute little round belly, that shook when she laughed like a bowl full of jelly. Kaitlyn is anxioulsy awaiting the arrival of baby #2, but she says it won't get her soon enough! She's had a few little mishaps during the last 2 weeks. But everything is fine with mother and baby. Here she is with the homemade goodness from Grandma White. Oh, these babies are loved. We can't wait to meet him.

What a cute little quilt. Glad he could come out of the closet for this baby! The border looks cute too with the border. And Kaitlyn looks lovely! Glad to read she is doing allright. Hope you all don't have to wait so long anymore! Love the design of your blog Shannon!
