Babies Galore!

Two weeks ago, I found out the my supervisor B is expecting her second baby. All very exciting, and I immediately started to think about baby quilt possibilities (of course). Then today, I found out that my best friend C is expecting her very first baby. I'm pretty much as excited as I would be if it were my own. The first thing she said to me was "now you can make me the sheep quilt". She was referring to a cute quilt I made earlier in the year from an issue of Homespun; she fell in love with it, and I promised I would make one for her when she got pregnant. It looks like this:

What I really like about this quilt is that the sheep are done in chenille, so it provides something tactile for the baby/child.

Luckily I've got about 6 months till both bubs are born, so I'll be able to whip up a couple of quilts quite easily (theoretically). The sheep quilt ("Counting Sheep") only took a week or two to put together, so it shouldn't be too difficult.
