Wonky Star Baby Quilt


I spent a couple weeks this month sewing another baby quilt.
Pink, Brown, Green and White

I've made quite a few baby quilts this past year. But this one is kinda special.
All bundled up and ready to go...

I had fun doing some Wonky Star's.
Wonky Star Crib Size Quilt
The quilt finished just a bit bigger then a crib size quilt. Approx. 45" x 60"

The fabrics were easy to pick out. The parents chose these colors for the nursery.

It's going to be a very cute nursery for a very cute little girl.
Quilted in Flowers

The little one hasn't arrived yet. She's coming in April.
Quilted in Flowers
The quilting was inspired by THIS post from Elizabeth of Oh Fransson!
So how do I know she's cute?
Green Wonky Star

Well I figure with the parents good looks, she can't be anything but cute!
Quilt Rolled Up

And I might be a little partial too.

Can you guess why?
Embroidered Label
Many of my nieces and nephews call me Auntie Jo.
So my new "name" was pretty easy to "choose". ;o)


Uh huh. Our first to be exact!

We can't wait for our first grand-baby to arrive!

Congratulations! How exciting for you all! My favorite memory of my grandparents is going over to the house when we were really little and getting to swim in their pool - as a little child that was the best!

Regena said...

Congrats and my only advice...spoil that kid rotten with love!!!!

Love your blog and thanks for so much inspiration! I am waiting to be a grandmother...and I can't wait! I want to be just like both of sets of my grandparents. They were always there for all of their grandchildren. They gave us true, unconditional love. And that is how I want to be. Congratulations on your little one! ethet at charter dot net

Danielle said...

Congratulations - so exciting for you. Spend time - the best thing my mom did with my son was to set aside time to be with him every week from the time he was born. They have a very special relationship - 18 years later they still get together every week.

How excited you must be! I'm not a grandmother yet. . .maybe in the next few years, if I'm lucky! My favorite memory is of spending the night at my grandparent's house - Grandpa would make us kids breakfast & take the broom and knock it against the ceiling to wake up Grandma! I'm so fortunate to have lots of happy memories! Congrats! julie stchsluv@aol.com

Shayla Sharp said...

The best thing about my grandma was that I always knew that with her, people were more important than things or stuff going on. She was always excited to see us and completely willing to stop her work to spend time with us. I miss her! The quilt is lovely and your little angel will treasure it.

Nanbon44 said...

Congratulations on being a grand ma. You are about to enter into a whole new world, it is a world of smiles, giggles, love and laughter.. It is so much diffent then the world of being a mother.. When your grand daughter is first placed into your arms by your child it is a moment you can not imagine, there will be tears of joy, love and laughter as you hold that precious bundle, Have someone perserve that special moment in time, it is my favorite photo of my first grand daughter and me and I currently have 21 grand children so there were lots of those special moments and it never stops we still love spending any time we can with those wonderful children.

Karen said...

Beautiful quilt! Love the loopy quilted flowers. And congrats! Spend time with her as other's have mentioned. That's what's most precious.

Julie Phillips, aka Julieloveslucy SCS said...

I am a new Grandma as of Feb. 25th, 2011!! I'm so thrilled, the only advice I have so far is to enjoy every moment you have with this new precious person!

Hugs
Julie

Katie said...

What exciting news! A granchild of a quilter is always a very lucky child indeed!

Beth said...

I learned to sew at my "Gibby's" knee...she always had patience. We taught me to make Barbie clothes. Grandmas always are pure love, and kids know that. The hardest and maybe best advise is to try NOT to give advise to the new parents unless asked...lol.
The quilt is beautiful...what a wonderful gift. I am sure it will always be treasured.

Pamela said...

You are going to love being a Grandma! I'll never forget holding my first little grandson, what an awesome moment, and it was just as good the second time around. My best wishes for a healthy happy baby and family!

KREEVES@CABLEONE.NET said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO HEAR THOSE WORDS FOR A WHILE NOW BUT SO FAR NO SUCH LUCK....JUST SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL AND REMEMBER YOU DONT KNOW THE WORD NO!

missy said...

Make every grandchild feel like they are your favorite! The daughters- and sons-in-law love this treatment, too! For years I was convinced I was my mother-in-law's favorite until I realized she treats everyone that way. :)

Carolyn said...

Congratulations on becoming a new grandma. Ohhh, all I can say is there is NOTHING like it. I never knew I could love little people as much as my own son, but I sure do....it's just a different kind of love. I just wish I could bottle up all those precious hugs and kisses and bring them home with me until I get to spend time with them again.

I remember my grandmother being the one that taught me how to be creative. She taught me to sew, crochet, cross stitch and bake. When we baked, she taught me we needed to always share, so we would take some to the neighbors. Bless her heart, I loved her so for being so patient and kind to teach me all of these things.

What a most wonderful giveaway! I'm headed over to my blog now to announce it and will be back to tell you about it!

Amber said...

Congratulations! What a gorgeous quilt. She will love it!

Anonymous said...

What an exciting time for the whole family! My advise as a previous child but not yet grandparent is this: Make the time to really listen to what your grandbaby is trying to communicate. Often parents just don't have the time to really slow down enough to listen between the lines. If you can make this effort to really listen your grandchild they will love you forever.
Enjoy all the adventures that lie ahead .......

Carolyn said...

I added your giveaway to my blog for a second chance. Ohhh I've been wanting one of these for a long time. Woohooo!

Amy said...

No matter how close or far you are cards and care packages for any holiday you like to celebrate are always appreciated by grand kids (my grandma always sent me a crisp new bill in the mail with a St. Patty's day card to help me celebrate with a little green :)

Karen said...

Such a CUTE wonky star baby quilt. I like the wow colors. Very happy for you Gramma.
Would enjoy a baby accu cut, would use the machine to make quilts for kids being adopted.

LesQuilts said...

Hi! Thanks for the Gp! giveaway!
My word of advice is set a day, even a few hrs in the week, at the convenience of you and the parents, to spend some special grandparent-grandchild time. Start when they are very young. Continue all thru school, etc
A friend of mine did this, and the children called it Grammy/Grampy time! My children still have fond memories of their time with their grandparents, even tho they have passed on.
Wish me luck in the giveaway1
Take care, Leslie

LesQuilts said...

I'm going, right now, to post on my blog about your giveaway!
Thanks again
Take care, Leslie

Phannie said...

Congratulations on your first Grandbaby. My parents just had there first grandbaby this past year. They love my little girl. She is spoiled rotten. She has her special toys at Gramma's house and her special toys from Gramma at home. She loves to spend time with Gramma and Grampa. She screams and yells and basically jumps out of her skin when they show up.

I really like that my Mom will babysit for my Hubby and I when we need a night out. Honestly, I do love that they spoil her. Maybe that's bad, but I like that she likes my parents better. Shhh. Don't tell. And I LOVE that my Mom doesn't give her back to me when she has a dirty diaper. She changes her. I know she changed a whole lot of diapers with all of us kids, but she is still willing to change more. Wonderful.

Enjoy every minute.

Denise said...

Congratulations!!!

Unfortunately, I have no advise to share with you :o( I have a 21 year old daughter and I told her I guess I am gonna have to rent a grandbaby!!

Your quilt is stunning! I'm sure your lil bundle of joy will have many, many warm days and nights wrapped in it and your arms.

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

My favorite memory of my Grandmother was her made from scratch hot chocolate. What a treat!

Tanya said...

Congratulations to you and your family! I'm not a grandparent, but I did birth the first two grandchildren for my parents. Best advice is spoil that little girl rotten with hugs and kisses and quilts! Looks like you're off to a great start! That quilt is adorable.

Phannie said...

I posted it on facebook. I know my family and friends are going to love your blog and the many cute things you do.

Tanya said...

I posted about you on facebook! Hope your little granddaughter arrives smoothly in the spring. My grama is a part of almost ever fond childhood memory I have, and has made such a positive impact on my life. I'm sure you'll be the same.

arlette said...

Congrats for your new grandbaby, Grandma Jo!!!!
Well, I don't have kids, and I'm going to tell you my experience with my grandmas, they spoiled me lots!, both of them teached me how to sew, and crochet..., also I had a pretty nice relationship with one of them (my other nanny lived too far away), I used to spend long time with her in her house after the school also I made some trips with her (when I was in vacations), she did it, because she was a widow, I was really attached to her..., she's in Heaven, but she lives in my heart. My other grandma's 102 years old and she's in excelent health condition, I take care of her from time to time, and she's a sweetheart!!!, she's always trying to get us to learn more things taught by her!!!
Spoil the new baby in your life, you only have one month ahead to get ready!!!!, and after show her the things you love and teach her!

arlette said...

Forgot to say I'd like to have a BABY like this, I really need one, LOL. The info about your giveaway's in the sidebar of my blog, thank you for the chance, and CONGRATS & CONGRATS for your beautiful grandbaby

Kathy said...

I am so happy for you. There is no other experience to compare to being a grandparent. We are lucky to have 3 wonderful grandkids and love them to bits. And so will you with yours. My advice is that once you see the child everything will come naturally so just soak in the love! Thanks for the giveaway!

MosaicMagpie said...

I have wanted one of these GO cutters for sometime. I think of all the wonderful things that I could make with one of those fabulous machines. Thank you for the opportunity to win. What wonderful family treasures you are creating.
Deb

texasdaisey said...

Congrats to you grandma! What a joy. My advice is to teach that little one. Grandkids love to learn things from their grandparents. That is where I learned to garden, and some of my cooking, and several other things from my grandparents.

I am tweeting and posting on facebook for you. I am having a little giveaway over at my Gloryfeathers blog too if you are interested.

Cynthia Geddis said...

Grand babies are so great! You get to play and have fun with them without the hard parts of child rearing. You get to spoil them rotten and then give them back when they get cranky! We have one perfect 4 year old little granddaughter, and a grandson due in July. Can't wait to cuddle a new baby again!

I am a way off being a grandma yet but already looking forward to it. My granny's stories are what I treasure most, so interesting!

Liz Schaffner said...

The only advice I have is ...Spoil her rotten and enjoy every minute!

Linda T said...

I'm not a grandparent, but my children have four wonderful grandparents. I think the most important thing they do is just enjoy them! My kids love the time and attention they get from Opa & Oma and Grandpa and Grandma.

Congratulations and enjoy your giveaway!

Laura said...

Congratulations!
My best advice for you is to enjoy every moment you have with them, don't worry about all the things moms worry about, just concentrate on the fun silly things grand babies bring! :)

Greenville Coupon Clippers said...

Congratulations! I still have several things my grandparents made me. My grandpa was a woodworker and I have a dresser and toy box. My grandmother tatted and crocheted and I have a doily and an afghan she made. Home-made things are timeless and a treasure, your grand-daughter will treasure her gift from you forever!

What a darling baby quilt! Congratulations on the soon to be blessed event! Our grandkids are all grown and now we have five great-grands! They are wonderful!

Sandy Leigh said...

Grandparents are the best! And I think the best advice is to give them all the unconditional love that you can! Your quilt work is inspiring, and thank you for hosting the drawing--someone will be truly grateful. Hugs!

Remembrances said...

Grandparents are so special. Many of my fondest memories revolve around my grandparents. One Grandpa would take me whenever he went into town to shop and would give me a coin for the gumball machine, another taught me woodworking skills and from my Grandmas I learned how to cook and sew! Grandparents have special skills and time to devote to grandchildren - I know I do!

Martha said...

I would love to have a Baby Go!! I would be able to share with my friends and could make more quilots faster.

Big Toe Mom said...

That quilt is beautiful!!! I know it will be treasured. how exciting for you! There is a quote that I love- " Everytime a baby is born, so is a Grandma!" I have no idea who wrote it, but isn't it sweet?! congrats to you and your, enjoy. ( and I hope I win ;)

CarolC said...

Congratulations on your first grandchild. We have 5 grandchildren now with a another one on the way. The best part of being a grandparent is that you can just enjoy them without all the worry. Then when you're tired of them you get to send them back to their parents.LOL You're going to love it! Don't have a blog so here's my email. carol.claytor@yahoo.com

Doris said...

Congrats, Grandma Jo! I just found out I'm having a new niece in July! So happy it's a Girl!

Alicia Bunderson said...

Congrats! I am just a young mom. But my In law's (the grandparents) just love to babysit. They will even ask/offer to take the kids, instead of me asking them. That is a huge help and my kids love playing with them! Enjoy being a grandparent!

Tiffani said...

My mom always sends cute valentines and holiday cards with candy for my kids.They always know it's from her because of the cute wrapping.

Material Mary said...

Congratulations on your new grandbaby coming. Love this giveaway!! When I was a child, my grandmother on my father's side would always give us a couple of dollars for birthdays and Christmas. That was a lot back then and so exciting...

Nan S. said...

I am not yet a grandmother but I have wonderful memories of my grandparents. They lived across the street from a college and that afforded my cousin and I the opportunity for a Kool-aid stand in the Summer. One time we tried to have one when students were gone on break and we had no customers. My Grandmother dress up as an old lady with a cane and bought some Kool-aid from us. We never let her know we recognized her.

"Grandmas are moms with extra frosting!" My son gave this sign when I became Grandma Young and I LOVE it! You will love being Grandma! Congratulations!!!

Charlene S said...

Tell your grandchild how much you love them and their parents as much as you can. Listen to them,be their support for right and create a special time that is theirs alone. For my 1st DGD it is our pop & chocolate time and for my DGD#15 it is bubble bath times. My DGSs all know I will bike,hike, camp,& attempt to keep up. Just make your time with them their own time that is what my 18 love from the 27 year old to the 18 month old.

I am not a grandparent yet but I have lovely memories of mine. Quality time is what grandparents offer. Thanks for the giveaway.

Congrats! I am not a gramma yet, but I love when my kids grandparents spend time with them. They love it! The always want to see grandma and grandpa. But the best advice is just enjoy every minute!

Congrats!! My only advice would be don't parent, you aren't the parent you are the grandma, just enjoy your job as spoiler.

libmousa said...

My great grandma was a quilter and I always wished I had gotten one of her quilts. I didn't but she passed on the quilting bug to me and I love it.

Congratulations Grandma Jo!!! You will love every minute!!!

With 670 comments including mine you will have a wealth of grand parenting tips. I'll have to take the time to read a few to see what I'm missing.

My grandkids bring such joy into my life and every time they come to my house they run in the door squealing, "Grammi, Grammi, where are you Grammi?" It's so much fun. I love to play with them and spoil them and go to the park with them. It's fun to take them to the grocery store too and buy them a treat.

Just have fun with them and play with them!!!

Michelle Whitlow said...

Hmmm....I don't know that I have any good advice. Not a grandma yet...prego with baby #3. But what I can say is that it's important to not forget about the parents, esp mommy. I think some grandparents want to jump in and do everything and forget there's a mama who's been waiting just as long for that precious little bundle of joy!

Sandra said...

I am a grandparent and it is the greatest thing in the world. Love them bunches with lots of hugs and kisses. Play with them. Don't be afraid to get down on the floor or even under the kitchen table. Let them lick the spatula when you make those bite size cupcakes. Remember, the best toy you can give them is a cardboard box decorated by both of you.

Sandra said...

I am a grandparent and it is the greatest feeling in the world. Just love that baby to death. Shower them with hugs and kisses. And remember the best toy is a cardboard box decorated by both of you. Let them lick the spatula when you are making those bite size cupcakes.

Nanci said...

I don't have any grandbabies of my own yet but my fondest memories of my grandpop was that he kept a large pot of money ( all his loose change) my the front door and whenever we came to visit and would get ready to leave we could each take two handfuls of money and I can remember trying over and over again to cram as much money as possible into my tiny little hands. So much fun for a small child.

Anonymous said...

Embark on this new chapter with a sense of joy and happiness, what a gift to have a grandmother who is so excited to meet her grandbaby :)
As a mom of two girls and a boy, ages 9, 7, and 5...each one loves to have special time with grandma...no matter what the activity, it's a happy time together...making memories and strengthening the bond. My mom loves to quilt and this would make it so much easier for her as she has MS which has affected her eyesight and makes it difficult to cut small pieces of fabric out. She is actually teaching my daughters to sew. Good luck and god bless to your family!

Know you will too!

Nancy Sue said...

Two words..Chalkboard Easel. Look now for some good deals. I know your little one is indeed a tiny little one, but my folks bought one for my son when he was 2 and he loves it! I'm deaf so we have our closed captioning on our TV all the time even when I'm not home. He's an early reader as it's helped him connect the sound of the spoken word to the written word :)And lastly enjoy every single moment of grandparenting!!

ongratulations! Enjoy is all that I suggest!

Michelle said...

I spent almost the entire summer each year with my grandparents and although they have passed away these are some of my favorite memories! The thing I remember most is the freedom to just be myself, no matter how silly or goofy without criticism. And now I am thrilled that my son's grandparents do that for him. Parents enforce the rules, grandparents give wings to the dreams!

trace said...

1. Wonky stars ROCK
2. My grandma always read the funny pages to us, had Chicklets gum in the silverware drawer and homemade ginger cookies in the cookie jar--loved them all!!
3. Congratulations.

Saw a great thought the other day for us to teach the new parents...Don't ask your child what did they learn today...instead ask them Did you ask any great questions today?? How powerful is that??
Congratulations on becoming a Grandparent...it is all they say and more! You will enjoy every minute! SuBee618@gmail.com

JaneR said...

I love to think back of being with my grandpa sitting on the front porch in the summer and just listening to the evening summer sounds. He was quiet and so was I. Just being together was was enough for me.

Sandy said...

One of my favorite memories was my Grandma's apple turnovers. Oh my there were wonderful and she always made them when we came to see her.

sarah said...

i don't think i can still win. i've lost track of the days... but i'll answer the questions anyways... :)

i have so so so many fond memories of my gramma. she passed away 12 years ago and i still miss her. i even named my ten month old daughter after her. i think of her every christmas season. i would go over to her house and help decorate with the cheesiest decorations ever, while we listened to old christmas classics. i would help her wrap presents and make cookies. and as she got older, i would do her shopping for her. i miss her terribly (with tears welling in my eyes as i type this)...

my kids love love love spending time with my husbands mom (she's local, my mom is not). she has 4 grandchildren and her house has as many toys as ours does. she spends as much time as possible with them all and has even stepped down from her job as a middle school principal to spend even more time with them. my four year old goes to preschool at the school she works at and she meets him every morning at the drop off line and walks him to his class. i know it's special to him because he tells me about it every time i pick him up. :)

thanks so much. sorry for the long post. :)

Pam said...

Love your grandchild while she is little. Cherish each moment spent with her. All too soon she will be grown and busy with everything imaginable. Congratulations on your first grandchild. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

When I was four, my maternal grandmother moved down from Brisbane to live with us in a small apartment attached to the house (a granny flat in Australian lingo). I remember that we used to love the weekends when we would get to enjoy a second breakfast with Grandma, and that every night she would read us a story. But a particularly favourite memory is of standing on a chair beside Grandma in the flat's kitchen and helping to make Grandma. I am absolutely sure that you are going to be one terrific grandma. Enjoy all the cuddles. Congratulations.

Marcy Ort said...

Congrats! What incredible news! I remember making a quilt when I found out I was going to be an Aunt for the first time. I have a few years (PLEASE let it be more than 10)before I will be a gramma, but I can't wait for the excitement! my email is marcy_ort@hotmail.com

DebbieM said...

Congratulations on becoming a grandmother. I'm not one, but I always admired my grandma. Thank you for the generous giveaway. I hope I win.

Andy said...

Wow~ congratulations Jodi! One of my favorite memories of my grandma is how she would send me little notes and picture stories in the mail, even though she only lived 10 minutes away. Very cute star quilt too, by the way!

sewfordough said...

I don't have a Facebook account. Is there any other way to be able to register to win? The quilt is just adorable!

Sarah Craig said...

Congratulations!!! My best advice is to lay claim to the name "Nana" - it's easy for the baby to say and pretty soon you'll be hearing "Nana!" night and day! Enjoy that new grandbaby - they are so much fun, even more than your own kids!!

Anonymous said...

I am not a grandmom but my favorite memory of my grandmom is her smell. Oil of Patchouli, she always had that sitting out. So of course it is always sitting out in my sewing room. I am making something in that room that my future grandkids will remember me by, just like the fragrance that will always remind me of my grandmom. Congrats and spoil her rotten...it's your job!

ladybug said...

My advice as a new grandparent: respect the wishes of the parents. Don't disregard schedule, feeding requests, etc... it's hugely frustrating to develop a routine just to have a loving grandparent un-do all of that hard work! Congrats and good luck!

Beverly said...

Congratulations!
My memories are many and wonderful, of my maternal grandparents. They were NEVER too busy for their grandchildren. They loved playing Dominoes, Yahtzee and Rook with me. My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was in 4th grade. She made bread weekly and before school age, she allowed me to play in her large built-in flour bin, to my little hearts content. She taught me how to sift and measure flour and then I would practice over and over. As an adult, I have wondered how much flour I left on her kitchen floor?

Kerri K said...

How fun for you! I don't have any children, so I don't have any experience, but I know if I had a new baby I would probably be very sensitive to any criticism my Mother might give me, even if inadvertently and with the best intentions. So, maybe give advice only if asked for it?

Avon said...

I am a grandma to 25 1/2(a new one coming. It is as good as it can get. You can love them and spoil them. The best part is how much they love you back. I to make quilts for all of them, or will have when I get the last ones finished. My advise is to get a computer camera so they can see you and you can see them grow if you live far away.

Congrats!!!

A Plain Path said...

Beautiful quilt...so lovely. Just love her and make time for her. Lots of cuddles!

Thanks for a chance to win. What a sweet giveaway!

Linda said...

Congrats! I do love the blanket and the free motion quilting. I have eight GRANDS! Just had supper with the 5 in one household...youngest are 8 month old twins. I guess you just love then like you did your own kids...love them and send them home.

Wendy said...

Hope I am not too late.....congrats on becoming a gran! They are so much fun.....

crickets said...

Wow - that is so wonderful! I am not a grandparent yet, it'll be a while for me. But from my own perspective as a mom of a little girl, I'd go with what feels right. Of course, respecting the new parents ideas and such. You have so much experience to share and that lucky baby girl can so benefit from it all. Most important? Just love her with all you can.

Both sets of grandparents lived within a mile of our home. My Grandma N. used to let me come over and play with her doll collection. My Grandma L. used to take me rock hunting in the mountains behind her house. I am glad we lived so close so we could make so many fun memories.

Diane said...

I love, love my grandkids.....and have 6 with 2 more to be added soon. The best part of being a Gramma is you can go completely goofy and just say you are being a Gramma and playing with the kiddies. Best Wishes...and I would be so excited to win.

carolann said...

Congrats on becomming a grandmother soon! Your quilt is spectacular. I have so many happy memories of my grandmother! She taught me to sew when I was about 5 or 6, she could make a pattern out of a brown paper bag! She was kind and gentle and I miss her sooo much. carolann427@aol.com

I'm a first-time grandma (grandson) and it's wonderful. Someone gave me this advice: Always greet the baby's parents before you go for the baby. It's hard, but I'm working on it! The sweetest day was when they came to visit and he reached for me.

Congratulations Jodi! Since I am a first time Grandma too, my advice would be to not say anything when there is something you would do different for that grandchild. I've held back and I'm lucky enough to be a very involved grandma!!!

Congratulations on becoming a Grandma! Write something each month to your grandchild about what's going on with you and in the world as a record to remember. Enjoy!

Congratulations! You will love being a grandparent. I had only one grandparent alive and she only lived until I was about six years old. She always gave me hard candy when I went to visit her.

Congratulations! Your quilt is beautiful and something the grand will always treasure. Being a grandmother gives me such joy. Just love on her as much as you can. They grow up too soon. My e-mail is nbtay@sbcglobal.net Thank you.

I love that my mom has way more patience with my girls that I think she did with me! She's always so relaxed which makes me think I need to be more relaxed (we still learn by example way into motherhood, LOL)
