Now that I only have two months left of work before maternity leave begins, it’s really hit me that time to make things is running out!  Last maternity leave I filled my time with knitting while B napped, but this time B won’t be napping while the baby (hopefully) is so I won’t have my create time.  I’m also really excited to make as many quilts as I can before then!  Never can have too many quilts for a baby. 
So I’m continuing next with a unisex quilt.  I made the circles from scraps leftover from my next planned baby boy quilt… and since this is faster to make than that quilt, I’m progressing with this one.  I love the circles and the fun bold colors.  The yellow background is leftover from bunting I made my twin nieces.  The other side will be a beautiful (why didn’t I take a pic?!) fun colorful piece leftover from my grandmother’s stash (I love that it will be used for her great-grandchild). 

I plan to fuse the circles to the background and then only quilt the background, to allow the circles to stand out more.  When I was searching for my bondaweb, I came across Grandma’s!  Who knows how old these are but they’ll be used in this quilt for her fourth great grandchild. 

Grandma passed away just over a year ago so I get tears when I see her beautiful handwriting on this pack.  I doubt she would have gotten around to using it herself and she’d love for it to be used in this way. 
Thanks to Freshly Pieced for organizing this weekly WIP.
