Penny brought me a quilt to finish for her 4 year old grandson. She was very clever with her design for the quilt. A book panel was bought but instead of making a fabric book, she made a quilt. Sashing, in primary colors, was added around each individual block. We decided to stitch a simple swirl pattern so it wouldn’t distract from the quilt itself.
On the borders, there is a farm scene and a small alphabet on the top. Can you see it? What a great place for teaching children the alphabet.
Children’s quilts are amongst some of my favorites because they are so colorful, playful, and fun. I just love this quilt! Well done Penny!
Judy also brought me a cute quilt for someone special. She decided to add bugs on the inside area of the quilt.
Along the border, marching ants were added in a variegated thread. They really are there.
Here is an overall picture of the finished quilt. Did I tell you that this is Judy’s first quilt? She did a great job!
Until next time,

Thanks for checking out my blog. I have followed your blog, especially this year’s BOM. I still have not stitched one block but I like it.
