Not much of a belly so to speak.
Hope I can look like this again one day! :)

No more door knob. LOL
24 weeks
Still in my regular jeans with the help of a hair band.

So far I've gained about 17 lbs.
I'm very pleased.
The kiddo is rolling around a bit more than she was but not like I thought she would be.
I know that's coming soon enough tho.

Baby's Floor Quilt

I made this quilt for us to throw on the floor and play on or to drag outside and put on the ground. The back is denim, the front is soft and cuddly flannel. I still have to "rag" it but I need to figure out what to do with the edges before I do that. The denim is from old pairs of jeans that Greg and I gave to my nana to use and I got back when she moved to Chico. So, how geeky is it that our kid who has our genes gets a quilt made from our jeans?

This is what 16 pairs of jeans looks like when cut into 169 6.5" squares

169 flannel pieces cut from 14 different fabrics

The flannel and denim paired up. It's quite scary looking

All sewn together, this is the front side

All sewn together, this is the back side

Now to figure out how I want to finish the edges- do I bind it or just rag it?
If I bind it, what should I do it with? Denim? Flannel scraps? Cotton fabric?
