Great niece quilt

I didn't even know I was expecting one, LOL. My niece and her husband have been going through the adoption process for more than 2 years, but never told anyone.

They were approved in October, and amazingly got a baby girl, Gabriella Sofia, in 4 days! I found out Thanksgiving Day, so I made this the holiday weekend.

Fortunately, my niece has never seen my "Quilts for Kids" quilts, because I use this pattern all the time for them.

Congrats on the new baby! Wow - keeping it a secret for 2 years is remarkable! We have adoptions in our family - and when everyone knows, it is the 'topic' all the time! All well meaning, but very hard on everyone.
I am so happy for them, and Gabriella Sofia is a beautiful name.
The quilt is adorable, and perfect for a little girl.

RE: Great niece quilt

Oh I love the hot air balloons and all the bright colors. What a perfect quilt for a little girl.

Best to you,

Mary, That's a great quilt for a lucky baby with a beautiful name. Love the layout and colors you used.


RE: Great niece quilt

How thrilling for them. I know because my dd's are adopted. The quilt is great too.
