My cousin is having her fist baby next month and she and her husband aren't finding out the baby's gender. How fun is that nowadays!? One of nature's most wonderful surprises :). Her shower was last Sunday and I was so excited to give her a quilt that was practically still warm from the dryer.

The colors for their nursery are brown, tan and cream with the theme of woodland animals. Awwww ... can you say "cute??" I found the woodland animal print at Joann Fabrics and that led to a simple patchwork quilt filled with the beautiful colors and some framed blocks with fussy cut woodland animals.
Baby quilts are so fun and enjoyable to sew. Small enough to layout and quilt easy enough, yet can be large enough to show off a pattern.

I posted most of the progress pictures on my instagram feed if you would care to follow the (mis)adventures of me and my Rottweiler in our quilting journey. She's still my assistant but she has slowed down recently. Most of her help comes from the sidelines now as she is loath to get off of her orthopedic bed. I've really gotten into the habit of only posting my finished quilts on this blog. I feel like over the years I've pretty much touched on every topic I can in a quilting blog so I was starting repeats. Also, it's such a hassle to drag out my real camera to take pretty pictures and then hook it up to the real computer, download, etc. etc. My iPhone does take nice pictures but for some reason they always looked washed out and grainy on here. Why???
