    I just finished this quilt. It is a maple leaf pattern but I thought it would work great as arrows. It is for my grandson, who will be 23 months at Christmas. This is his 'big boy' bed quilt. I had a lot of fun working on it and I hope he will get years and years of use from it. It's a bit big. That is my 6'1" tall husband holding it up.

    Oh! I just realized I haven't put a label on yet. :oops: I guess I'm not quite done.

    Thank you butterflywing and Yvonne. Now I have to finish up a couple baby quilts for my cousin who had twins, finish up one for my husbands long-time friend (has to be done in a week) and finish up one for my girlfriend. Then I can start on the one for my new grandbaby who is due in August.

    Geesh, I sure wish everyone would stop getting pregnant. I have other projects I need to work on. :lol:

    It's definitely big enough. :lol: I guess I was having so much fun making the blocks, which went together like a dream, that it just kept growing and growing. Seems to happen a lot to my quilts.
