The baby quilt...........

When I asked the parents to be what color quilt they wanted for the baby the dad said blue and gray.  Then he said cowboys.  So this was my idea of cowboys.







But this was his idea of cowboys - Dallas version.......blue and gray.  I alternated H blocks for Baby H with Cowboys fabrics.









Yesterday I met the baby for the first time - my great-grandson.  He is a little over 2 months old now.  I had forgotten how hard it was to hold a natural smile while the photographer waits for the baby to look pleasant, or hopefully smile.







He's a little cutie and a good baby too.  I'll have to wait awhile for him to tell me if he likes his quilt.

He is adorable, Wanda! Gorgeous photo! I can see the family resemblance. The quilt looks great. No doubt he will be a Cowboys fan when he grows up.

sosarahsew said...

Wanda, that little guy sure is a keeper! His quilt hits all the marks - traditional cowboys, football fans, H for Hanson, boy, boy, boy!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

what a cutie! glad you got to finally meet him. I'm sure he will love his quilt.

LynneP said...

He is absolutely adorable! The picture of the two of you precious. What a lucky Great Grandma; wishing you MANY years of love together.

Beth said...

Great Picture of both of you.... yep... I think we all think the same... re: Cowboys!!!

GO STARS! said...

Cute! I would have done the cowboys like you. In fact I've been collecting cowboy and Texas fabric for a quilt for my youngest. He grew up in Texas but lives in Iowa now. Not a big football fan but he's a Bubba as we call rednecks.

A real cowboys fan would have liked either cowboy motif.

Impera Magna said...

Oh how wonderful! A darling baby to cuddle and a great quilt for him to enjoy! You look great holding that precious boy!

GO STARS! said...

Left off telling you how sweet that little baby is. You just want to squeeze them and snuggle them all day! Gotta get your hugs in before they're off and running. :-)

Vicki W said...

What a great quilt for a Cowboys fan! Maybe by the time he's old enough to follow them Jerry Jones will be gone and they can be a winning team again. :-)
Really cute baby! It must be really special to have great grandchildren!

crazylegs said...

What a great photo! He's a darling!
Congratulations to you and your family!

Lola Carr said...

Loved seeing and reading about that little guy. And the quilt you did is wonderful...a big hit with all family members, I would guess! Great pic for a great grandma! :)

karen k said...

What a sweet baby! Nothing better to cuddle. I liked the first cowboy quilt idea!! But understand guys and their sports.

Lani Glasser said...

Lovely picture of the baby but I was pleased to see what the lady who makes all those amazing quilts looks like! Just love your blog, the big print and plenty of Kaffe Fassett!

Elaine said...

Great picture of both of you. So, is that the back and the front of the quilt? What a blessing. Congratulations!

suemac said...

Congratulations, Wanda. You both look perfect. It's so nice to see a photo like this of you. The photographer did a great job, too!

Great picture of you both. He is a cutie. Love both sides of the Cowboy quilt.

Cowboys? I never would have thought of anything other than guys on horses with ropes! :-)

I like the H's that you added.

Sweet baby ,cute baby. I like the story,but like the baby best.heha.Vera.

Pat said...

What do father's know? Cowboys, I too would have thought "cowboys and Indians". I like your idea best for a baby. What a cute great grandson. I wonder if I will be around when I have one. lol Kids don't get married young anymore like I did. The baby looks like a great addition to the family. Congrats!!!!

Charlotta said...

I definitely would've gone with the first kind of cowboys as well - and, as you know, I don't have good experiences with letting recipients have input on their quilts. You did a great job. Perfect compromise.
I'm not a "baby person" but I firmly believe that no baby is bad! And your Baby H certainly looks like a healthy and very presentable specimen! Is he your first great grandson? Hope you get to enjoy him as much as you want.

Helen said...

Everything is so... ADORABLE! Your Great Grandson, your photo with him and the quilts. All perfect together. Great Post!

Jackie Kunkel said...

You are right! What a cutie pie! That is a fabulous picture of the two of you too! Congrats on the first meeting and wishing you many more!

wolfiestitchin said...

Great pic and the great granson looks mighty satisfied. So he must love his quilt and his great grandma :D

dls said...

Love the picture of you and your new love! It's very sweet.

Also like your version of a cowboy quilt best! Have always liked a western motif on fabric!

Glady said...

He is adorable! Congratulations on your new great grandson!

Needled Mom said...

Catching up here, Wanda. I love these pictures!!! What a thrill to have that sweet little one in your hands.

I also found your daughters mosaic work fabulous. As they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!!!

Brown Family said...

I was raised with your kind of cowboys. But even though I live in the Dallas area, I detest the other kind! It is a cute quilt for a sweet baby!

Connie said...

He is really a cutie Wanda and that is a wonderful photo of you!

Taos Sunflower said...

Your cowboy quilt cracks me up!

Love the pic of you and your g-grandson. You're really fortunate.
