The unconventional baby quilt

The pictures don't do the vibrant colors justice!
Our little guy is going to be nice and warm all wrapped in the quilt that Nanna is making him. Let's hope she gets her quilting skills back as it has been 5 years since she quilted anything but she is amazing at what she does! I have an awesome Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt she made me way back in Fresno.

We picked out fabric while we were together in Sisters, Oregon last week. Of course I didn't pick anything traditional - nothing with trucks, sporting equipment, rubber duckies, frogs or sailor-ish for our guy. The fabric is now the inspiration for his future room. We are a family of solid color lovers with lots of accent walls and his room will be no different. Chances are he will hate it in his later years but we will deal with that when it comes to blows.

Yeah for babies, yeah for quilts, yeah for little boys rooms, and definitely yeah for Nanna's. Now the countdown starts - will the little guy have his new cuddly quilt by the time he is born? By his six month birthday? By his first birthday? Only the Nanna knows.

AAAH! Love the colors and prints! His room is going to be beautiful. Crocheting doesn't offer such cool colors or designs, but I will make do.

Go Nanna!

And Go Auntie Leah! I can't wait to see your blanket and more importantly see you.

I need to start knitting ... because I am going to have all sorts of free time, right? HA!
