    Lego quilt and tooth pillows

    Thanks to "Julie's free time" here on the board, I got ideas for my DGS birthday quilt. He has told Everyone he is having a LEGO birthday party so he needed a LEGO quilt, right? I got the artwork from thie internet. If you google lego you get many hits. I usually make them a pillowcase to go with their new quilts. Since he is 5 I made him a tooth pillow. The tooth goes into the mouth. It hangs over the door knob so it's easier than when we used to dig under their pillow and hope they stayed sleeping. I also made his sister one but she won't get hers for 15 months when she turns 5 (hope I can find it by then). lol It's kind of hard to see but I used a duble lace for a tutu on hers. In case you can't tell his is an officer. Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoy them.

    Great idea with the tooth pillows. And, what boy doesn't love Legos! Love how you used the window pane pattern to accent the Lego blocks. Thanks for sharing.

    That Attic Window setting is just perfect! I'd never thought of a Lego quilt before but after seeing this one, I'm surprised there aren't zillions of them -- it's fabulous! He'll love it! Way to go, Grandma!

    Very cute! You did an amazing job on your Lego quilt. I have picked up quite a few of those little yellow heads in my time.

    Love, Love, Love both the quilt and the pillows. Where did you get the pillow pattern? I need to make about five of them. I have also been wanting to make an Attic Windows quilt. Was it hard? Thanks for showing the pictures. BrendaK

    Thanks for all the wonderful compliments. I've always been scared to do the attic windows but it was really quite simple. I was amazed I didn't have to "frog" any seam. They just went together like they were supposed to. I got the tooth pattern off the internet but can't remember if it was page size or if I had to enlarge it. I made it about 8x10. The officer cap gave me the most fits. I made it 3 times before I was ok with it. I'll try to answer any questions you might have.

    You did a fantastic job! I am so flattered that you used some of my ideas in your quilt. I love how you put the name and date on one of the blocks, really cool.

    How adorable. I've never seen a tooth pillow before. The Lego quilt is really cute too!
