We organized a baby shower for Michelle this past weekend in Toronto. Only six weeks to go! Michelle's such a relaxed, fun person... so, of course, her family and friends are too. We had a great time.
Last Christmas, when Jay and Michelle announced they were expecting, right away Melissa and I started talking about the quilt we would make for Baby Loftus. When we met up in Peterborough and went to fabricland together, we realized the logistics of making a co-quilt while we live five hours apart might be difficult. As well, our fabric visions were a bit opposite. We decided to use a similar design (coin quilts) and make two separate quilts!
Here's the one Melissa made:
It's a rocket theme because Jay's a rocket scientist!
Look at that lovely rocketship.
See Cole and Isaac through the window? The whole time I was taking these photos, they were arguing over whose mommy I was. "My Mommy," "No, my Mommy."
Here's the one I made. It has more of a newborn look, whereas, Melissa's is sort of a fun toddler quilt.
One of the fabrics is trees.
And owls on the back.
We finished them together on Friday night! The shower was on Saturday! Phewf!
