Star Baby Quilt

I just finished hand quilting the baby blanket for my first grandchild. Just in time. I have to add, all the small pieces took longer to quilt then I had thought. Now that I know the baby's a girl I may have to make a pink girly girl quit for her.

And here is our little bundle of joy. In the picture she is 1 day old. The hospital glues bows on the girl babies isn't it just so cute. We can't wait for all the fun my husband and I have ahead of us. Oh yes her name is Allison Joy, 8lbs 5 oz.

Um, I love the quilt and the baby.....but I am a little puzzled over the GLUING of the bow to the baby's head???? LOL Seriously?? Is it easy to get off?? Sorry it has just tickled my fancy.

Hi Lizzy, I haven't been by for a while, and I was just astonished to see your grandaughter had arrived! Even more than that, she and my #10 grandson, Levi John were both born on Feb. 20th!!
She's absolutely beautiful, and how lucky you are to get a girl!!
The quilt is beautiful and I'm sure she'll be loving it to pieces. Big hugs, Finn
