Little Man's quilt is done!

I cut, ironed, trimmed, and sewed.
I stippled.
I made perfect corners.
(And a few imperfect ones too,
but I'm not showing you a close up of those.)
And I made my own Little Man very happy.
Don't be fooled by his expression in the picture;
it was taken after a long, emotional day.
He loves it.

Yesterday when he called his Auntie Rachel on the phone, he told her excitedly about his blue and orange quilt and exclaimed, "I'll go get it so you can see it!" He then handed my the phone to me and ran out of the room to get it.

I decided to make it into a twin sized quilt and not a toddler bed sized quilt. After all, he'll only be in the little bed for a short time, and I'm hoping the quilt outlasts the toddler bed stage. Right now, though, it's the perfect size for his little bed when it's folded in half. I love seeing him enjoy it.

Christina...It turned out wonderful. I love the squares inside of the squares. He'll love it for many years...you were smart to make it larger. Those children only get bigger!
