Thank you for such kind remarks! I don't know about my crafting skills but as far as babies go I think I make them pretty cute Wink

So I guess I'll be making another blanket in January Grin if everything turns out ok (I was a bit too active with my little girl and everything so I had some problems - a big hematom that is - and that's why I have to lie down and may not do so much crafting Sad - that explains my absence here. Will get better I hope and I'll take pictures of what I made already - there's quite some stuff waiting Smiley - if anybody is interested that is.

Congrats! I was going to say that I can't even make a quilt by myself now, I can't imagine having contractions and wondering how much longer it's going to be and yet do such a fantastic job! If you've got to stay off your feet you can get your embroidery out of the way and maybe even try hand quilting? I'd love to see what you make when not under pressure lol

I LOVE this idea--what a lovely thing to share with your children. It makes me happy I haven't had any babies yet! I'm so snagging this idea for each one when the time comes. Thanks for sharing such a great project.

And kudos on sewing during contractions! That's what I call a devoted mommy!  Wink

That is such an awesome idea, and I absolutely adore the quilt. It's precious, as is your baby.

I love your quilt and have a suggestion.

I am just finishing up memory quilts for 2 of my granddaughters high school graduation gifts. I planned on having them finished for them to take with them when they left for college. I'm running a little behind. Smiley  Anyway, what I'd like to suggest is that whenever you sew for your little one, save some scrapes from each project. I wished I had thought to do this for my granddaughters. I only have scrapes from a few of their dresses and Halloween costumes for their quilts. I would suggest you set aside and label a box to place them in. Then as you sew, you can put them away for future memories. The highlight of the memory quilts that I am making are embroidered squares that each represent something from their growing up. They are pieced with a lot of scrapes (and memories). The first one is almost finished and I hope to post it soon.
Where is my mind?

It's beautiful, and so is your daughter!  She will cherish it for the rest of her life.  This is a fantastic keepsake.  Smiley
