    My 9 year old has two teachers, and both of them had babies this year. His regular teacher had a girl and his SPED teacher had a boy right before Christmas. I finished the quilting on the boy quilt today. Now it needs bound and have the label slapped on. He's not ever asked me to do anything before, so I was definitely up for the job. I named them "....and everything nice" and "....and puppy dog tails".

    This was attempt 2 and 3 at FMQ. I am actually fairly happy with how they turned out, but my machine is DEFINITELY too small to attempt it again. The girl quilt is 30 x 40. but the boy quilt is 45 x 60 and too much for my little Janome. I quilted hearts and stars in the girl quilt, and just stars in the boy quilt because they are SOOOOO much easier. So there is a star in each large blue patch, and an overall scribble/stipple wavy thing going on for the overall affect.

    These quilts are special for my little boy, and I've had a lot of fun doing them. I like the pattern so much more using just 4" strips instead of bigger ones when I did the twin size.
