I finished the quilt top for the around the world baby blanket, but it ended up being too complicated looking compared to my Grandma's usual style. Each of us kids has a baby blanket from her ... mine is on the bottom, Hunter got Winnie the Pooh, Savannah got the cute purple/pink teddy bears and Colton got the alphabet blanket. Each one is just a straight yard and a half of fabric, flannel backing and tied. And I realized, it's time to stick with Grandma's original plan and make the blankets look like something she would and did make.
So, I am going to Jo-Ann's for some Debbie Mum fabric that's on sale and going to throw together her quilt tops this weekend ... and make them just like Grandma likes them. Her mental health hasn't been the greatest and I really just want to make sure we celebrate her and have each of our "future" kids with this special gift from their great-grandma. But that leaves the question of who to give this animal quilt to? I love it soooooo much and don't want to just "give it" to someone that isn't ultra special. ;)
