My son and my nephew were both expecting baby girls mid-January. Well, my granddaughter arrived on the 3rd, and my grandniece is due any moment. AND the quilts, of course, are not done!

The quilt top of one is done. Green and purple and cute prints. It will have a deep purple border.



And baby quilt 2 is in progress, I have all the large squares done, working on the partials (it will be set in a border on the diagonal. But I ran out of yellow, so fabric store trip this weekend.



Now I have to decide whether to have professionally quilted, saves me work, adds time.

Update pics, I am still waffling on final quilting.

Quilt 1 with new border and back pictures.



Quilt 2 front and back. My nephew had a baby girl Jan 24th. So two brand new baby girls in the family. Yay!

Yup, that's what I figure, by the first birthday. Actually, I'm shooting for the end of January. If I don't have a deadline, I don't get work done!

I love it all, and the wonky stars (Do I have the correct term?) are adorable!

I don't have a name for the pattern. It's a variation on another pattern. Interlocking Stars maybe? It was a bear to put together as the star corners were shared. I had to really pay attention and make partial panels, and tney were all different. But it turned out well. I'm changing the yellow border, I just don't like it.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
