|First family photo|
This week, I have been busy making baby quilts. Note: I'm not making one for HRH, although Kate has only to ask (her wish is my command), and Logan's baby quilt is finished and waiting for him in his crib. I completed two quilt tops this week. They are both the same pattern, but the fabric choices make them look very different. I prefer the brighter colors in the construction quilt. The pattern is called 4-Patch, Plain Patch and it is found in Ursula Reike's Quilts for Baby which is one of my go-to quilting books. Both baby quilts were made entirely of fabric found in my stash. I didn't need to buy a thing.
The Winnie the Pooh quilt below is going to my friend Helena who is having her third child next month. She is supposed to be having a boy. Her two previous ultrasounds were both wrong, so I figured that Winnie the Pooh is fairly gender neutral in case little Jacob turns out to be little Jessica.

My Mom had a double knee replacement in June. My two brothers and I each went to Florida and took a turn helping out, but she has needed some full time help for an extended period (this was expected). She has found a wonderful woman named Charisse who has been helping out with cooking and errands. Charisse has also been doing double duty as a computer consultant and helping my Dad with his new laptop computer and tablet. My Mom, of course, was showing off my blog to Charisse who admired the quilts and wanted to buy one for a baby gift. I am making the baby quilt below as a gift for Charisse (who in turn will give it as a gift) because I really appreciate what great care she has taken of my Mom. P.S., my Mom is doing great!

I am also including a couple of other photos so you can get a better look at the fabric in these quilts.

Hope you have a great weekend! I am linking up to Richard and Tanya Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sew Many Ways and Crazy Mom Quilts.
I have just added a new link to Plum and June: Let's Get Acquainted.
