A couple of months ago I posted asking for ideas for a baby activity quilt for my SIL's baby shower. Well, the shower was yesterday and the quilt got done just in time!

Very cool! I like the colors you used - I have nothing against pastels and all, but it's nice to see a quilt that would easily fit into the decor of a home versus something with the same ol' pinks, blues, lavendars, etc.

Thrilled to be expecting Baby #2 after 15 months TTC (a 30% drop in TTC time than Baby #1!)

Oh, my goodness. I can just imagine DH's reaction if I told him I was going to make another one. It's a wonder our home and marriage survived in the week leading up to the baby shower... in fact, it's a wonder there are any trees left standing around our house.

One of SIL's friends at the baby shower took a shine to the quilt and asked if I made them to sell. Luckily MIL, who crafts, sternly told her all about the impossibility of recouping costs on homemade items and so on before I had to think up a response other than bleary-eyed drooling. I finished the accursed item SEVEN minutes before we left for the baby shower, and that was having worked on it solidly since 8AM, having been up until 2AM the night before, and having coerced DH into helping take care of the baby, trim threads and square off the quilt for me. Let's just say time management isn't my strong point...
