    To Infinity and Beyond.....A quilt for our Grandson

    This is what I have been working on. Curtis Ray turned 2 yesterday. I would have had it finished in time, but one of the dogs pulled a Houdini on us and escaped her kennel. So we spent a couple of day putting up new wire. Hopefully chew proof..lol

    I used it as an experiment on my new frame. I don't have a long arm machine just yet, so my Brother SQ9000 had to do the job. Since it had such a small throat space this small quilt took a while to do. It is my first attempt an FMQ.

    1st photo is the birthday boy, Curtis Ray.
    2nd photo is the quilt itself
    3rd is the back
    4th is a pillow I made
    and last is the label, embroidered on my Brother PE770

    Thanks

    I made it so he could drag around the house, lay on the floor and watch cartoons.

    Adorable, both. Little boys are super special tome as I have raised 4 sons. My granddaughter I am helping to raise is much harder. Between reading constantly and never cleaning her room, leaving thing lay everywhere. Laundry, she does, no matter how much, it goes in one load. Sits in the dryer for days and then she wears wrinkled clothes. My sons did none of the above. LOL Enjoy, they grow up tooo soon.

    Thank you all!!!

    He is who I call grandbaby number 13. Last of the Mohicans for my son and his wife. They have 4 all together.
    He is quite the charmer, I met him on my visit to Oklahoma in March. I am sure he will be a little ladies man.......haha

    My kids were slobs, plan and simple.....LOL
    I kept the rest of the house clean, they "waded" through theirs. About once a month I would go in there with a rake and totally clean their room. Anything of value on the floor went into boxes and stashed. I eventually gave it back. After a while the "cleaning raids" were down to a few times a year......lol
