Colors and Quilts

When my niece Nikki was born 3.4 years ago, I made my sister a quilt for the baby. Now, I am not an avid quilt maker, but I do know how it's done. I mean, I took a whole 3 hour class on quilt making back at the Garden City Community College in 2000 or 2001. :)

Now that it's time for my sister-in-law to her her first baby, I plan to make her a quilt. I know exactly what I'm going to do for it, the size, pattern, all of it except the colors and fabric. I have been pestering Jenette and Chris for about 1.5 months. I think I'm getting close. The deal is, JoAnn is having a 1$ off each yard of quilting fabric sale that ends Saturday. I'd like to take advantage of that sale. So, I may be pestering them again today. Or just picking colors myself like I did for Nikki and Jayme in 2006.

But for my own baby, things are opposite what they are for new niece. I know the colors and fabric, but don't have a design and size planned. I have some general ideas (concerning dinosaurs), but I still have a lot of planning to do. We plan to use tan, sage, and lavender in the baby's room. We bought fabric last week (you can see it here).

Either way, I'm excited to make new baby quilts for my niece and my daughter!
