I have a baby quilt dillema and need some advice.

Crayon roll lups. I haven't figured out how to move the pictures to where I want them yet.

We just found out last week that we are going to be Grandparents again in July. A Boy! Our other two are girls. I want to make a baby quilt and diaper bag to match. I have been just informed that the shower is May 16. Here's my problem. They are going with a sports theme, baseball, basketball and football. I have been on-line for a couple of days trying to find some cute material and there is nothing that I think would be good for a baby quilt. I don't want a totddler quilt. I know that my stepson loves primary colors. I saw some adorable dinasour material, but have been told by his sister that they wouldn't like that. So I'm lost. So any ideas would certainly be helpful.
The doctor is still fooling around with my medications and I still don't feel wonderful, but not bad. Yesterday, I made a crayon roll lup for my BFF grandson. She has also asked me to make a tote for her mother-in-laws walker.

Here is the rag quilt that I made myself last month and a couple of crayon roll ups for Easter gifts.

Happy Easter everyone.

Thanks, Connie204

Happy it's almost spring

Hi everyone. I haven't been able to blog for a while as the computer has been really acting up and hopefully my DH finally has it back to normal. He has been struggling with it for awhile now and I haven't been able to get on it.

I still haven't had a chance to really understand all of this blogging and my mind has been on lots of other things. I made a rag quilt for myself as I had a bunch of flannel that I purchased a couple of years ago. I have to take it to the laundromat to wash and dry it. I will then post a picture after its been washed and dried. I have never had the nerve to do the first washing in my machine. I also made a crayon roll up for my 2 yr old granddaughter which did turn out really cute. However, that has been the extent of my sewing. The doctor has changed a couple of my medications and told me that I would feel like a truck ran over me and I really do feel that way. Hoping that in the next few weeks it will get better. Hard to sew or think straight when not feeling well and no computer. Still looking for a job, with no success. Have a great day and hopefully soon it will warm up.
