On the Go Baby~

And another sweet baby quilt is ready for quilting.  This one I will hand quilt because the momma who will receive it, isn't due for another 6 weeks so I have plenty of time.

I found this pattern on Moda Bake Shop here.  It is entitled "On the Go."  It was a fairly easy quilt block pattern, until I put it up on the wall to take a picture of it and realized some of the squares were in backwards.  A quick trip back to the sewing machine and they were all fixed.  My children were hollering in the background to "just leave it be momma."  I just couldn't though - it had to be just right.

The fabric was not from any particular grouping, but rather a random combination from Joanns, our local fabric store, my stash and my favorite Kona Cotton in white.  I think it turned out so adorable!

The momma to be is having her eighth child, another son, and she is my age.  How I long to have another baby of my own, but it is not apparently in God's plan for my life.  So for the time being while I don't get to hold one more of my own, I will rejoice in holding the precious gifts of others.

Stay tuned for the reveal of Abby's beautiful quilt for her room.
