New Grandson!

 I have a new grandson!
Miles Patrick was born 3 weeks early
on April 10th and we are thrilled to pieces.
I had been back and forth to my daughter and SIL's
to help with 15 month old Olivia for the last couple of weeks,
since my daughter was having a few complications.
All is well with her and their beautiful son.
God is good!
The nursery theme for Miles is Outer Space.
A few weeks ago in an email from Shabby Fabrics,
they had a kit with a space themed quilt.
I'm not one to use panels, but this kit was really cute.
 I ordered it and have been working on it when I 
was home here and there.
Yesterday I finished it and will be able to deliver it on Easter!

The fabrics are all space related and a lot of fun.
The panel was cut into squares and about
half were used in this quilt.
I'll have to plan something with the other squares.

A border print was included and cut into strips
for part of the design.
The other fabrics are yardage.

This awesome backing fabric was sold seperately
and was perfect for the finish.
It has been washed and dried and is ready for delivery.
Welcome to the World, Miles!!
Happy Quilting!

Congratulations Granny! And welcome Miles! The space quilt looks awesome! I would never guess it began as a panel. All your designing makes into a great looking and really fun quilt! It looks large enough for him to grow into for a few years...that will go by really quickly. Enjoy!

Congratulations on the new grand baby. That's going to be a very busy household, and I'm sure they will appreciate your help. That is one fabulous quilt!

Congratulations to all. I’m sure everyone is relieved. He was certainly eager to get into this world, but that beautiful quilt will make him excited about traveling out of this world. Enjoy that new baby.

Hooray for your new grandson! And hooray to you for his new quilt. Looks terrific. I am sure you have been delighted and tired caring for your granddaughter. There is absolutely nothing like having a second generation of kids to cuddle and love and take care of. Enjoy the wonderful time you have together. Lucky you!
