I finished adding the binding to the final baby clothes quilt. This ended up being the 3rd of 3 that I kept for DD. The others are a twin, a double, and this one a very generous full/queen. I made so many others with her baby clothes many of them completely reversible such as this one is. This feels like an end. I'm actually glad to see it too. Knits are such a picky fabric to use in quilts. While it might be an end to the endless baby clothes quilts it's the beginning of the next chapter and I can finally close the book on everything I started three years ago. I refused to part with any of DD's baby clothes and stored them away like a squirrel jealously guarding a winter's hoard.
Heather told me about the conception of her son; we didn't know yet that she was having a boy. That was a great day and I was so happy for her. I still didn't want to share any of DD's old clothes but I thought, maybe if she was having a boy, which is ironic since some of DD's clothes came from her! Lucky enough for my heartstrings she was indeed having a boy (who is now in Pre-K!) and that's when I first started allowing myself to pick things out of storage. In fact Heather got every last stitch of neutral to boy I had. Oh I did hold one back, you can see it in the heart in the bottom left corner of the above picture. See the blue with darker blue stripes? That was a footed sleeper, I bought it because my DH told me he was sure we were having a boy and I believed him. We have a picture of me with that sleeper draped over my belly laughing.
