    My son wanted me to make him another quilt. I let him pick from my left overs and this is what came out of it. No design, just randomly sewed them together. Not much cutting or anything. It turned out pretty good. The batting was left over fleece and the backing I used a terry cloth towel I picked up a few years ago on clearance. I have made a couple of blankets with the terry cloth backing for him to take to his daycare. He liked to use them for his nap time. They were always long enough to cover him. This one should be nice and toasty for him!

    He is a sweetie, and just brought a big smile to my face when I saw him wrapped in the quilt. I have several pieces of the same fabrics that I used in quilts for my 4-year old GS.
