3 Special Quilts for 3 Special Girls

A co-worker of my husband was expecting baby #3 (born in late Dec 2009), so we decided it would be nice to give her a quilt for the baby. We like to give the quilt after the birth so we can include the name on the label. Hubby had a cute bright scrappy top he has put together for fun a while back that was a little bigger than a traditional baby quilt might be, but still very cute for a little girl. We decided to finish it for the baby knowing she would be able to use it for many years as she grew. I made a label and we got the back together... sandwiched it... and then he quilted it and added the binding. It turned out so cute!

This co-worker has 2 other girls... 3 and 10. We thought "We need to make quilts for those girls too!" So we pulled out a very pink and girlie disappearing nine-patch top I had made and another bright top he had made. The disappearing nine-patch went to the 3 year old who we later learned adores the color pink!

And the oldest of the 3 got the bright scrappy 4 patch with yellow border.

They all turned
out cute and will hopefully bless these 3 special girls for years to
