Hugs and Kisses for babies

I quilted "Hugs and Kisses" and a heart across the bottom border of the quilt. Someday, the babies will be able to read it!
I'm a grandmother now - hard to believe, since I still feel like I'm about 35, but it's a wonderful experience. I've spent the last two weeks making a wall hanging for my new grandbabies - twins!
My daughter in law always signs her emails and cards with XOXOX, so I thought I'd use that theme for the babies quilt. The nursery is painted purple, and knowing that babies like bright colors and black and white, I used a Laurel Burch designed fabric as the centerpiece with bright accents.

I loved that the fabric had a brown woman who looked like she was a princess of the stars, and there were lots of different suns and some moons. They both speak to me of the wonders of the universe, and having twin babies seems to be an amazing event!

  1. What a wonderful, colorful, meaningful quilt! I know your grandbabies will treasure it. Being a grandma is a wonderful experience! And just for the record, you don't have to feel old to be one! :) I still climb on the jungle-gym or dance in the middle of Jack in the Box if that's what my grandbabies want to do.
