Well I may need one made towards the end of the year but promise to give you plenty of notice.

My sister and her partner have been talking about planning a baby towards the end of the year, which will make me the proudest uncle going around and will probably bring me to tears lol

I know the postage will be expensive but Im not fussed about that :)
Well, a baby quilt will help a little in the postage department as it'll be smaller, so can go in a smaller package for shipping.
I'm about done quilting for the season, and will start up again in probably September.  Will be doing a little piecing, but no more quilting til fall. 

I don't have any of these quilt nor fabrics any longer, but here are a few baby quilt samples, 2 of the 3 went to my sister (I think one was for one of her kids and one for a friend of her).

And I can swear, you will not be disappointed!!  I can't even remember how many I've gotten, and I love each one! 

And this sounds like exciting news, Ryan!  Can't wait for any updates you learn about!   ;)

I only  have record of these four and they are listed in order, I think.

I think there was one more that started it off. One you were making that I got for my mom that was all her favorite colors, and she still uses in her chair. And you sent a small mug quilt with it.

All I know it that each one was an immediate "hit" with each child who received one of the special ones you have shown! And each parent of each child was just as impressed!

What are her favorite colors, perhaps I can then remember then quilt.   I'm guessing I don't recall it, as it was one I had already done and it would work for you; rather than one specially made for you.

This is one I made for my sister like 6 years ago, I didn't even remember making, didn't have a picture of it, and their FB pictures only showed the backside of it.  I remember the fabrics, but don't remember making this particular quilt.   :P

[Edited to add: now I think I'm remembering it a little bit, and it was a project for quilt guild, but that's as much as I remember.]

This quilt is my all-time favorite that I've made, I enter it in the county fair and it got best in show that year.

OMG!! That is OUTSTANDING!!!

The one I got for my mom, had lots of "peach" coloring in it, with some pretty shades of greens and creams/whites.  She just loves it!

Ooh, ooh, ooh, I think I remember now, just didn't remember where it went.

Ok, now I'm looking and I have two with those colors, which one is it?  Or did I make a third in those colors.   :o

Cool.  Didn't remember who it went to.   Lots of quilts in my 10+ years of quilting, some years lots of quilts, some years nothing.

Well I'm glad we got you started.
Don't forget to find out what brother to upcoming baby is into so we can plan a little quilt for him, too.

That'll give me time to find fabrics and plan something special.   
Already have a start on the fabric for the baby quilt with that cute elephant print.

WOW!  That is going to be soooooo cute!!  And I'm so happy for my son!  I've never seen him so excited about anything in his life.  He was the last of my "herd" (children) to finally find the love of his life, and since the ultrasound telling him he had a son coming, he can hardly contain his excitement!  He was getting concerned that by the time he had married and started having children, the other "cousins" would be too old to play with his little one!  Not so!!  I think all the little "cousins" are as excited as he is to be getting a new little one!!

Goodness knows, this grandma is!!

I'll have to make a "visit" to their home, and see what I can see.  I didn't want to talk with Ben about what he thinks Chase might like, since I didn't want to give "it" away, but I'll find out for sure!

He doesn't have to know it's a quilt you're fishing for information for, grandma might just need normal gift ideas.
