    This isn't a quilt, but I'm so proud of it, I wanted to share it!
    This was based on Empty Bobbin's pattern for a Cardtable Playhouse.
    This will be shipped tomorrow to my niece, who's almost 4.

    Thanks, everyone!
    There were some challenges, but I dealt with them.
    This was my first use of Heat & Bond.

    Really nice job. I'm sure she will have hours of fun.
    Made a garage from my DS 30 years ago and just last year made a garage with race track on top for my great nephew.
    Kids really love crawling into places to hide.
    You are a great Aunt

    I played under one of these as a child and still remember it with a great deal of fondness at age 66. (Could have been also because I tried my first ciggie, a Lucky Strike, at age 6 or 7 under there! Of course, it *did* cure me of ever smoking again! :? )
