    Latest project - suggestions please.

    My primary physician and his wife (both MD's in the same office) have had their first baby. A boy over 19 lbs and 22 inches long. I saw my Dr. on Wednesday and teased him about sleep deprivation and he laughed and said the little one had slept from 12:30 am until 5:30 am, but he (my Dr.) woke three times to check on the little one. LOL

    I want to make a baby quilt for the little one. They have done the nursery in animals and lots of colors. I found I had a charm pack with animals and colors so I'm making just a simple 4 patch for the Drs. I arranged the blocks and wondered if anyone sees any blocks that should be moved due for better contrast. The lower corner I couldn't get in the pic, but I'm posting one of just the corner also.

    19 pounds??????? that poor lady, I sure hope you meant 9 pounds!

    The only thing I see is the three polka dots ones close together. The green and blue, bright blue and white and the light blue and white maybe should be separated a little more. Other than that, I think it looks great!

      Looks great to me!

      With a baby that big he probably eats enough to allow him to sleep most of the night. That is like having a 6 month old

      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        Oh my gosh, yes, that's got to be a typo. Please tell us it's a typo Bob!

        Looks good to me. Random is random.

          You can drive yourself nuts trying to get the perfect arrangement. The way it is is charming(pun intended).
          Quilters never die, they just go batts.

            I bet Bob meant >9 lb. (not 19). A baby that big would need to be delivered by C-Sec! My first one was 9 lb. 5 oz.; he was a whopper. He barely wore those newborn sizes 0-3 mos. but once or twice, & he was on to the next size. All those newborn sized clothes were like new for my 2nd boy who weighed 7 lb. 11 oz.

            Love all the bright colors in your fabrics, Bob. I see 3 green blocks (dif. fabrics) all in a row, which (if it were me) I would probably switch around. I'm sure it will be fine no matter how you arrange it.

              The baby was over 9 lbs. My mistake. Sometimes I worry about myself.

                    Your quilt looks great - and so glad it wasn't a 19 lb baby!! My 5th son weighed 10 lb 4 oz and I wasn't sure we'd both make it! He was supposedly 8 lbs according to the ultrasound! Anyway, I like your quilt and think it is a very kind jesture!

                      I think it looks fine. Both my girls were big, one was 9lbs 5 oz and the other 8lbs 6oz. Because of their size, they both slept all night from the day they were born. One of my sisters had a 10lbs 12oz boy and we had to go out and buy three month sizes because newborns were all too small!

                        We're just all breathing a sigh of relief for the mother.

                          I'd just space out the polka dot squares a bit more. It looks lovely and is a wonderful gesture for you to do. And yes, phew....I'm glad I can stop wincing too!! LOL!

                              Please don't worry about yourself. There are enough of us here who tend to worry about you.

                              I had a physician boss one time who weighed 18 pounds when he was born. TRUE! His mother was about 5 foot tall and bigger around than she was tall. He used to joke that if they measured around from her feet to the top of her head she'd be over 6 foot.

                              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
