Quilts for Triplets!!!

My sweet neighbors are having Triplets!!! We are super excited for them! We adore them, and share so much in common (well minus triplets). Kerry and I had a long path of infertility. We talk openly about it, with the hopes that our journey and struggle will be able to help others. Gina was conceived through Invitro by the best Doctor out there (in my opinion). We had been open with our neighbors and it turned out they were having trouble conceiving, I gave them our Doctor's name and finally they too are expecting!!! Three wonderfully growing baby girls!

When I was invited to their baby shower I panicked because I had not yet started the quilts! I had 3 days to get them started and finished. I work so much better under pressure.

I used my stash only for these quilts, and a simple log cabin knotted quilt pattern. Older babies love to mush their sweet faces in this quilt.

I loved using the Heidi Grace fabric with the houses on it. It was so appropriate for a neighbor quilt :)I wanted them each to have a different quilt. The mommy to be loved the handmade goodness too. I love it when they tear up :)
