    First Quilt for my GS

    Now that he's approaching two and outgrown all his sleep sacs, my daughter is relenting on blankets etc in the crib. It took a while to find some themed material they were familiar with but I did find some charm squares and small yardage from the "Pout Pout Fish" line.
    And to lift this small but plain quilt to a more interesting level (both for me and my GS) I stitched some of the characters into the border and scattered over the surface, adding a little more fun, I hope.

    What a well planned quilt! Your little grandson will have fun tracing the outline designs with his little fingers.

    Oh what a cute quilt for your grandson! He's going to love having that quilt for his very own. I love the stitched characters scattered around in the quilt & the backing fabric is perfect. Love the bright green binding. You did good!!!

    Very cute! With all the new “ rules” for child rearing, I wonder how past generations survived.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.
