Fast forward, Christopher has begun pre-school, big sister is ready for middle school, big brother is thriving...and....you guessed it!
I hope this hot-off-the-machine baby quilt is gender neutral. I know there is magenta in it but one can't just live in the blue corner of the spectrum. Apparently "we" will discover our November baby's gender next week, but I couldn't wait.
My favorite fabric in this little quilt is the magenta/green piece. It is Aboriginal Australian (ish) with a big ole jabaru (large tropical wading bird). Mr. Christopher's mother was our only child who was able to take a semester off and visit us when we lived in Australia. She loved it (of course) and has promised her husband and children that they will return someday. I'm sure she will like the reference in the very tropical, watery baby quilt. Oh, and they live in Florida so it's not like the quilt won't be in fashion.
So to our #6: WELCOME!
