New Baby: Welcome Gwenyth Baby Quilt

We have a new baby in our family:  Gwenyth Elizabeth Grandon.  She is the baby daughter of Angela and Zach.  She was born September 17, 2014 at 1:28am.  She weighed 7 pounds 1 ounce and her length was 18 inches long at her birth.

A tradition that I've begun is to create a baby quilt for my nieces and nephews new babies.  This is a fun project that allows me to think thoughts of love for the new baby and the parents and all of our family.  It is often a very joyous time.  Our family is very big—Bob, my husband has 11 siblings and their children are all creating families.  My daughter and sibling’s children have not started families; that may be in the future.

Sometimes I ask the parents for an idea about colors for the baby quilt.  Sometimes, I have an idea that I think will work.  I always hope these handmade quilts are used and well received.  

Angela and Zach were interested in colors of pink and grey.  I went on the search for fabric with my friend and sister-in-law, Ruth Rosimo last summer during a visit to Portland, Oregon.  We found this very cute fabric.

100% Cotton flannel fabric, with cotton batting.  Machine stitched.

Size: 42” x 52”

Sweet growing and sleeping, dear Gwenyth.
