Eleven (11!!) days, and counting.  Of course with a first baby you just never know.  I think Momma Kate looks pretty darned good.  The nursery is done, she's wrapping up loose ends at work, her bag is packed. and big "sister", Lily the Great Dane, has been briefed on what's expected of her.  She's even got some meals stashed in the freezer.  I should be so organized!

Here are some pictures of the nursery.  Kate wanted non-gender specific fabrics, with modern design.  No pastel duckies or primary colors for her.  She picked Kate Spain's Fandango line of fabrics because she fell in love with the colors and because the designs resonated a bit with her husband's Mexican heritage.  The only thing that's left to do is the crib skirt.
The bumpers are made from 6 different color strips and bound in a coral.

We made 3 sets of sheets that coordinate with the bumpers

The quilt was made with big HSTs from the entire fabric line. 

I just love the colors and the clean, crisp look.  The back of the quilt is made with very broad cross-wise strips of various fabrics, something Kate asked for specifically.  You can catch a glimpse of it in the top picture. 

This week's project will be the crib skirt!

I'm so impressed! Everything is beautiful; Kate's fabric choice was spot on. I'm looking forward to reading that your next grand has arrived.

Oh how exciting for you! The crib looks lovely and such pretty colours. There's one lucky baby on his/her way. Good luck to you all and I look forward to hearing all about your new grandchild.

She looks great! I have to tell you, the last two babies in our circle came early!! Love the Fandango for the nursery. I love the modern fabrics and colors the new moms seem to be using these days!
