Allie with her new quilt!

Ava meets her baby sister, Allie for the first time!

We were blessed with grandbaby number six on February 2. Unlike most of the other grandbabies, Allie decided to wait til she was full term to arrive. My daughter, Amy allowed me to be in the delivery room when the baby was born. She did amazing. Amy was at the hospital less than two hours when Allie arrived. And she let me cut the cord. Allie was also Amy's biggest baby at 7 lbs. 11 oz. She is perfect!

Ticker Tape Quilt

Being modeled by my sweet husband, Richard!

After the wash.

I was looking at some of these quilts on other blogs and flicker and loved the idea of the quilt being almost finished after the scraps are stitched on. Because you sew through the top fabric, batting and backing while you apply the scraps, the only thing left to do is to bind it. It's such a girly quilt. I think I'm going to hang it in Ava and Allie's new bedroom.
