Renee's quilt

I've finally finished this baby quilt that I'd cut out and hauled the pieces back and forth from MN to Louisiana twice when I'd gone down to be with Jessica during her bed rest days.  When I was at Jessica's I just couldn't get into the mood of sewing so I needed to get on the ball and get it finished once we realized that our grand daughter was going to come early.  I just finished it Friday.  It is now rolled in tissue and ready to fly back south with me.  Leah and I are having a baby shower for Jessica on Sat. the 18th.  It should be a fun time - except baby Renee still won't be home.  It will be good for Jessica to have her girl friends over for a visit.
Renee is still in the hospital, and I'm sure will be for several weeks yet.  This would have been the start of her 34th week in the womb.   Jessica is healing and is moving around more, able to do dishes and pick up the house a little.  She said that feels so good to do normal things again - but still no heavy lifting or vacumming.

I have a matching baby bag cut out and started, but it won't be done by Tuesday evening, so will have to mail it when I'm done.

Pattern is from "Anka's Treasures-ANK 270"

It is beautiful and will make a wonderful wallhanging after Renee is done using it --- unless it is the one that she attaches to and carries it to Kindergarten with her! :)
