A Quilt for Baby Abel

We have another baby due to arrive in our family in July.  This little boy belongs to our nephew's family and should be here in approx. 4 weeks!

Any baby born in July needs a red, white , and blue quilt.  Don't you think?  ;)  ;)

I'll be machine quilting today and hope to deliver to Abel's grandmama's house  sometime next week.

This is what our grandsons have been playing at my house.  If you can't take the boat to the water, just bring the water to the boat!  What fun!

pinwheel quilt: (note to self) made with 6 and 1/2 inch blocks (after cutting and sewing, each block measures approx. 11.5 inches). two inch striped border, 4.5 inch outer border. Binding cut at 3 inches to start.  Measures approx. 45 inches square.


  1. Love the quilt and I agree, being born in July he needs a patriotic quilt! Looks like your grandson's had fun in the boat. Great idea!

  2. Pretty !! Love the red, white, and blue!! Perfect!!

  3. I love that red white and blue quilt! Awesome. We are waiting for grandson number 4 any minute and then number 5 in August. I have done all the baby sewing I can stand for a while. Time for some other kinds of quilts.

  4. Oh my word, that is absolutely awesome!!! He will cherish it for many years to come. You are so talented. Hope you have a great 4th of July!!!
