I'm going to be a GREAT Grandmother....and I mean GREAT!

Ha ha, I probably will not be allowed within 10 feet of my new grandson after he's born on July 10, 2014. By caesarean!

Anyway, I'm making him a quilt. Not sure that I like it much so it's a work in progress! 

Is it cute? I made it with flannel - front & back, but now I'm unsure what kind of border it should have! The back is yellow flannel with little elephants on it. I quilted it 'in the ditch' but I want it to remain soft so I'm conflicted about quilting more on it, like my daughter thinks I should.

I think I'll get some more of the dark blue (elephant) and the pale blue (blocks) and do a double border then bind it in dark blue. Too boring? Well, tomorrow I'm going to do it and hope I don't have to rip anything off! I'm also going to quilt around the animals by about an inch. I'll quilt elephants onto the blocks. I'll show you when I've finished it.
