I can't believe I had forgotten about some little brown donkeys. I must have even liked donkeys when I was young. My oldest daughter just e-mailed me asking is she and her sister didn't have baby quilts. I hadn't thought about them in a long time. I think I gave each of them their own but I'll have to check the cedar chest when it gets warmer. Lynda's was yellow because back then you didn't know if you would have a boy or girl so yellow would go for either and Mel their Dad liked yellow. Why I picked donkeys I don't know, I remember them being cute with little flowers around them and on them. I embroidered all the squares and my Mama quilted them. With the second baby we were going to name him Shane so his quilt was blue. He ended up being Leah so she got a blue quilt with I think bears. I've got to find out about those quilts, where they are and what kind of condition they are in. Now I do remember boiling the diapers, mixing formula, and sterilizing bottles. One of the most beautiful sights is white cloth diapers flapping in the sunny breeze. Now I've got to remember what I did with those quilts.
