little white crib
My generation of 26 grandchildren, born during the baby boom, had a lot of cross-over of baby times, so not all got to sleep in it, but my mom did use it for the four of us. Dad said he would stick his foot out from the covers to roll us back to sleep.
We three sisters used it with our 9 children, Seth being the last 14 years ago.
Janna is preparing to be the first grandmother of us. (Beth and I say we already are great aunts, now we get to be Great Aunts!)
I pulled it out of the attic for Janna to pick up.
It is not in the best of shape--note the bungee cords holding it together at the wheels.
I think it is time to use it for a ceremonial photograph, then grab that child to safety!
The quilt is a Puss in the Corner cut from 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch pieces, finishing in a 4 inch square. It is ready to send to the quilter and Mom will bind it for her first great-grandchild.
For the backing I found a wonderful print fabric of McCalls patterns that I am sure my mom sewed from!
