Sew & Tell Friday: BABY EDITION!!

Yes, he is finally here! Our baby grandson, Mason Mitchell, was born on Wednesday, September 26, at 10:32 a.m., a beautiful, healthy, nine pound, 4 ounce bundle of joy. Mama and baby are home from the hospital and doing well. We're all so happy the waiting is over. He is so precious!

Just like his big brother, Aaron, so proud of his baby brother. And I am SO proud of him. :o)

Yes, I am one happy Mom and Grandma.

Here's the quilt I made for Mason, which has been all hush-hush until now.

I wanted to do something extra special with this quilt, so I had it longarm quilted by Marcia Wachuta from Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting. She did a beautiful job with the swirls and hearts. I love it!

I'm going to free-motion quilt like this someday...

I couldn't wait to get the binding on so I could get it washed and see it in all it's crinkly goodness.

I finished a baby quilt for my niece the same week, so I had to take a shot of the cousin quilts together...

Of course, every baby quilt looks best like this:

Love you, baby Mason!

I'm linking up today with Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday (appropriate for this post in more ways than one!), hosted this week by Kristy at Quiet Play.

And Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts has brought back Finish it Up Friday, too!

What a cutie! And the quilt is gorgeous.. I will be a first-time grandmother next April, and am just waiting a couple more months to find out if it is a boy or girl, so I can start quilting away!!!

Congratulations! He is absolutely precious! I love the quilt you made for him, and of course, I already told you how much I love the one for your niece. I'm FMQ'ing my version of the girl quilt now, hope to be able to post it as a finish later in the week.
