baby quilt {red, blue & gray}

Did you notice anything different about Griffin's quilt in his nine month post? It's done!! So, his room still isn't finished, but at least his quilt is. I love how it turned out. My mom did a fabulous job. And she was really patient with me. The pattern had a border around the outside of the quilt, but when she put it on I didn't really like it. I just liked the circles. So she took off the border and added more circles. That's why it took so long. Super nice mom, I know.

The front is all circles. And the back is gray polka dot (Ta Dot Stone).

These are the twelve fabrics I chose (plus white for the background):

9. Annela Hoey Sherbet Pips Playdot Red (from local quilt shop)
10. Moda Bella Solids-blue (from local quilt shop)
11. Moda Bella Solids-gray (from local quilt shop)
12. Charcoal polka dot (from Hancock Fabrics)

My mom used this pattern for the quilt (minus the border). 

Nine months later, Griffin's quilt is done. Hooray! Now if I could just finish his room. :)

Jess, I noticed!! It's gorgeous :) Your mom did am excellent job. One day his room will be finished. Spending the days with your men is more important than a finished room of a nine-months-old baby boy who doesn't care about that yet ;)
Your family is so precious!! I love you even though I haven't met you once :)

I love love love your quilt. I remember when my son was a baby. I had a quilt (the kind you stitch by hand the old fashioned way) on my quilt frames. I worked on it when I could but finally....my mom finished it when he was about 3 years old. Kinda funny that it took that long. I did have good intentions. It is a darling quilt and yes, you will get the room done someday. Little Griffin won't care. All he will care about is "when do I eat?" and "when do I play in the water or play with my brother?" Your boys are so cute and they look like they are happy little guys (well, for the most part!! Ha Ha). I think that is because they have parents who have such good hearts and love them so very much. I can tell there is a lot of love in your world and that you have a lot of faith and trust in your life. Your daughter must so proud of her mama and daddy and her baby brothers!!

Hi, Jessica! I love the quilt. It's precious and will "grow" with him. My friend who is a "super quilter" has offered to make quilts for my 5 grandchildren. I know, she's a SUPER friend, too. I wish you were close by to help me with the colors. I do machine embroidery and she quilts so I'm going to embroider some of the squares and she will piece the quilt. I need HELP deciding on all the colors. The children range in age from 14, 13, 10 (only boy), and 2. I want something that will "grow" with them. SO difficult to decide what to do. Any ideas?

I love that you posted your fabric sources! I always love your choices and I am getting sick of my local store selection.
