    What cha think? Do you think she will like it? it is just the top because I will have a long wait to find out when the baby will be born (Aug.) and I want to embroider the baby's name and DOB on there.

    Quote:Very Pretty! I love the pinwheel blocks, there is something about them that makes me smile. At least you got the top done before the baby was born, I am always so far behind and hope I can get it done before the child is all grown up. I think she will love it!

    Thanks for all the comments on the quilt. . She is going to be a young mother and I am praying that her the father of the unborn child make the right decisions from here on out.

    Hi....1mommahen....where have you been? Is the basket holding up for you?

    #1 California Chick....nice to see you poppin in. The monthly block swaps are up and running again [​IMG]

    Speckled Hen....I thought the same thing. So if the child learns something from the quilt (colors).....I have done the job right.

    verthandi....I love, love, did I say love? pinwheels.....they are my favorite

    Insider.....lol I'll make you a top but you'll have to finish it lol

    Quote:Yes, she is.....she comes to the house a lot and she asked me a few weeks ago if I'd make her one and I asked her, why in the world would I do something like that?. She looked at me funny and told me that she was like one of my kids. LOL She doesn't know about yet and I am going to try and keep it a secret, but I ain't good with these kinds of secrets.

    Angela, my basket is holding up perfectly! It is used primarily for dinner bread and rolls and I just love to take it out of my pantry and fill it with nice homade things![​IMG] I've been around! Knitting socks and keeping warm!
