In case you can't tell; I am going to be using some Pink fabrics...... :)  and some white Chenille, and a bit of light green yellow pink mix... I cut the fabrics in 5ins squares, the backing will be a white old Chenille bed spread... So it will be soft and warm for my little Niece,,, nothing but the best for my Lucy....

The white Chenille has such wonderful texture to it, I love to mix and match textures,, you get such a lovely feel to it...  I am planning on making a decorative pillow for the babies room... and maybe a few other things for her room..... I love to make baby items for the Nursery....  Well ladies I hope you enjoyed my photos of the beginning of little Lucy's Quilt.... I will make sure I do up dates on it... I am also knitting a baby blanket for the Knit A Square to send to Africa, it is a wonderful Charity I have some 8x8 squares to send out,,, with them they make a whole blanket and give to a baby or small child who is sick or has no family... I just love being apart of this.... I will do a post on it in the future,, and have a link you any one who wants to know more about it, I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit,, I love all your comments.... So until next time... God Bless;

Oh I bet the quilt will turn out wonderfully. I made a quilt for both daughters before they were born, and saved them so that they could pass them on to their children. How wonderful, home made quilts are so devine, and a wonderful treasure. I think the colors you have chosen will be beautiful pieced together.

Blessings,
Heidi

Oh Alaura, Lucy's quilt will be beautiful! What lovely colors! Yes, I think you'd better make one for yourself as well! But I have to say, I think you should have saved this for Pink Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am glad you enjoyed it. I kind of laughed at myself while writing it! LOL!
