    I recently finished this quilt for my grandson, Lincoln. I embroidered a stamped quilt-top panel, quilted along the lines printed on the fabric, and added the bias binding which I cut myself. There's nothing original about it, but I'm still proud of my work.

    Original or not, I love it! It's a very cute quilt. I'd be happy to say I did it.

    The quilt is adorable and the bias binding was a perfect choice.

    Oh my gosh is it cute! maybe not original per se, but it was done beautifully and with a lot of care and love. Also took a great deal of time to do I am sure. The little one will treasure that someday.

    Lovely quilt and full of interest for a young one, you did a very nice job, I would love a close up to see the embroidery as well, I like embroidery but do not do much of it these days.

    Thank ALL of YOU for the compliments! We took the quilt to Chicago over the weekend and gave it to Lincoln. I'm posting two more pictures, but they're only slightly more close-up than the first one. I used varigated floss that has light, medium, and dark colors, so in the pictures it looks like there are faded places in the embroidery.
