Today was a special day at our church. We had a shower for three of the expectant mom's in our church. Next month we will do another shower for two more ladies that are having babies. For those of you who attend big churches, that may not sound so unusual to have 5 babies all due within a couple months of each other, but we attend a very small church. I think our average attendance on Sunday morning is around 125 or so, maybe a little more recently as the church family is growing.
So I have been working on baby quilts for a few weeks now. The last three babies born in the church, one of which was my sweet Adeline, I made quilts for. Now its like I set a precedent that I will make a quilt for new babies born into the church family, which I enjoy doing. But when you have 5 coming so close together, it can be a challenge.
This quilt is made of blocks that my mother quilted (solid pastel blocks) and blocks that I made (girls). Both are hand quilted and I used a quilt as you go method to sew the quilt together.
I think it made a very special quilt to have one made both by Lorelai's great-grandmother and grandmother.
