A Quilt for Drexel

This past weekend I was honored to be invited to a VERY special baby shower. Our Niece and her husband are expecting their first child next month, a wonderful reason to CELEBRATE! Saturday was a beautiful day, warm temperatures (for a nice change!) and sunny skies made for a perfect Spring day to celebrate Misty and their new little addition. I found the perfect gift bag to coordinate with the nursery theme!

This is the bedding that Misty chose for Drexel's nursery. (Sorry, I don't know who to credit for the photo) This was all the inspiration that I needed to get started on my gift for them.

I think I came pretty close matching the fabrics with the look Misty is going for.
I made Drexel a rag quilt to snuggle in! It is washable, so he and Mommy can be fashionable on the go. The nice part (I think) is that every time you wash it the "rags" get a little fluffier.

A little closer view, ready to give to the Mommy to be!

And a little extra surprise for Mommy! She had seen photos of the first quilt I did for her - I was too excited to wait! So I purchased some lime green flannel and added it with the extra fabric I had left and made a smaller 5 square quilt for her too. I think you can tell that she liked it!

Congratulations Mike and Misty! I can't wait for that baby to get here now.

Turned out great & I can't believe how much it matches the nursery bedding! I bet she was thrilled!
