Quilt Saga

22 Feb

So the boy’s quilt is finished. After hours of free motion quilting and several minor repairs, it survived it’s first road test last weekend. Now it’s gone from here, tucked in sweetly in a bedroom on the other side of town–and although I had wanted to show it in person to a few people–it’s not looking like I’ll get it back any time soon. So here’s what we have:
date a reminder of WHEN it was made and for whom–but figure he’ll remember WHO made it so left that off–face underneath it for the first time and finally,
the morning after.leg

This was my first quilt and I was surprised that it shrunk as much as it did after it was washed and dried. Final size approximately 56×72.

    i LOVE this. even the cross town part. and HOW DID THE BOY GET SO TALL????
    but you know, there’s a whole world of room for border border border….?
    i love the colors, the joyfulness, his smiling eyes.

      hi Grace. great idea about adding borders–growing the quilt as the boy grows. he’s really not so tall–i think the angle of the morning after shot makes him look longer than he is. but yes, his eyes do smile!

    Yes…he will definitely remember who made it. So sweet—love the quilt and his sweetness
