Little Man Quilt




My little quilt is finished. I really started making this thinking that I'd give it away to one of two friends having a baby boy in the next few months. But I love it so much I'm gonna keep it! And I had talked about hanging it on Little Man's wall but he wouldn't hear of it. He said he wants it in his bed. So that's where it will go.


I love the colors and brightness of this quilt. And I think I especially love it because most of the fabrics came from my stash (I did add three fat quarters from the quilt store nearby) and the pattern is my own design.

how sweet that your little man wants to cuddle it instead of just look at it.

Oh, I love it! It's adorable! No wonder your little guy wants to keep it for himself.:)

Do you do your own machine quilting?


Have a wonderful day!!

I love your polka dot quilt. I'm working on a polka dog quilt using a raggedy heart pattern.
