    Just finished the binding on this for my cousin's new baby boy. Baby Benjamin was born last Friday at a whopping 11 lbs 6 oz. His Daddy (my cousin) used to work on our family's farm and he was part of the Antique Tractor Pull Assoc. and he currently drives transport picking up milk on dairy farms, hence the theme for this quilt. Thanks for looking.

    Another great job!
    Who but you would think of using the farmall fabric for stars. And with the focus fabrics in the centre, it's absolutely perfect!!!

    Looks like the baby business is booming with your connnections. You're great at creating quilts that will be treasured keepers for those who are fortunate to receive a MamaBear original!!!! :)

    Of course, you know that I want to know if you got the milk truck in there for his Dad ... saw the baby calf on the lead! And did you manage other breeds than the infamous Holsteins? :lol:

    Only Holsteins on this one. I still need to add Coloured Breeds to my stash. I have yet to find Milk Truck fabric, but if I ever see any you can bet I will own some.
    Thought you might like to see the toy box DH made for Addison last year

    Here is the Milk Truck

    For some strange reason I doubt we are ever going to see Milk Truck Fabric! Great Toy Box ..... I think you need a milk logo for more authenticity! :)
