OMG: Baby Quilt

We seem to be in the midst of a baby boom around here. My niece is expecting a boy at the beginning of October, so I need to finish this quilt:

I need to get this Forest Fellows quilt finished this month. Then I'll need to plan for yet another baby quilt, because my nephew and his wife are also expecting, and I'll have to get that child's quilt done by November. Including my grandson, that will make five little boy cousins born since Sept. 2014.  Good thing I like making baby quilts!

Getting this Forest Fellows quilt finished is my priority goal for August, so I'm making it myOMG and linking up with Heidi at Red Letter Quilts.

Of course I have lots of other projects on my plate, including the Heart Builders top I mentioned Monday (scroll down to Monday's post), and finishing PAussietivity, which is due at my LQS on Friday, and working on a secret collaboration with Alycia for later. I guess August will be a busy month.

  1. It does sound like August will be busy! So many lovely new members of the family, though, make the work very worthwhile. :)

  2. I too am in the midst of a baby boom - just finished baby quilt for third baby born in September/October! Phew. But they are fun to do, so I don't really mind...

  3. Good luck with all your plans for August. No baby's in our family, but I've got graduation quilts to finish. I guess it's all about the stage of life everyone is in.

  4. Babies and Grads around here this year, I can't keep up! I adore the Forest Friends fabric and look forward to the quilt for this lucky baby!
