How close?

How close do you allow the quilt to get to the batting's edge?
The quilt is supposed to be 48.5" square, and the batting is 48". I think with a couple too large seams, the top was closer to 48" in one direction.

Too close? Probably, but I don't have a better option. My other batting is too thick to use the fleece for the backing. I really want a nice, warm quilt for Caleb this winter.

If I start now, will it be done by Christmas? :)

Slow down!

Somebody tell Caleb to slow down, he's growing too fast. :P

The first picture was when he was 6 days old. Cute and small.

Second picture is just before he was 4 weeks old. Just a little growth. I'll let it slide. ;)

The third picture? Exactly 10 weeks old and he looks gigantic!

I love his expression, it looks like "oh no! I grew! How do I stop?" He's such a good baby, I don't want this time to disappear in a few blinks.

He's also discovered a lot in the past 2 weeks. His hands. That he can actually grab stuff. He kicks the duckies in his bath tub. He'll try to talk back to us sometimes.

I've also started cloth diapering... that probably gives him another inch on his bum. ;)

Baby Caleb is growing!

He's getting to be such a big boy now. :) He hit his official 2 month mark yesterday.

He's sweet and cute to wake up in the mornings. Full of smiles and laughs. :) And speaking of such, I think he's about to wake up for the day.
