Baby Shower Gifts

Saturday my mother-in-law and I had a shower for my sister-in-law. She's having a baby girl at the end of January, but with the holidays we decided to have her shower a little early.
I made some burp cloths . I love these kind made out of cloth diapers. They are so absorbent. I made some bibs at the last minute too, but for whatever reason the picture will not upload.
The other thing I made for her was this kitten quilt. The pattern is from American Quilting in Orem. I love how it turned out. I think I need to make one for my baby girl!
Here is a close up of the cats. I embroidered the faces and then appliqued them using a running stitch and black floss.

What lovely presents for your sister. I'm sure she will love the burp cloths and especially the darling cat quilt. A lot of work went into that, and I'm sure she will the quilt will become a family treasure.

So so cute. I'm trying to make a baby quilt on the fly for a family shower on Saturday. Why do people only give you 1 week with invitations?

What a darling quilt! I'll have to show my quilter-in-training aka as my daughter who LOVES cats when she gets home from school!
