    It turned out really well and is for sure a 'boy' quilt.
    Live and let live!

    It's a bit funny - I had already made him a quilt for his first big-boy bed. Made it over a year ago to have it ready and that poor kid is still sleeping on a crib mattress on a toddler bed frame - he's turning 5! The quilt I made is a baseball theme, but is quite grown up looking. She very politely and delicately asked if I could make one for him to use now - before he gets one that will do him for his teens and on. She wants to keep him little longer. I totally agree so happily am making this one. I made a monkey one when he moved from his crib. This one for his first big boy bed. The baseball one will do from age 10 or so on to college. No problem making quilts for this Grammy. As long as they'll sleep under them - I'll make them.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    I agree. I can't believe the difference the cornerstones make. Cool quilt.

    He will love it! They should call cornerstone the anchor stones because they seem to anchor everything together perfectly!

    Oh My Gosh, I love sashing and cornerstones. Your quilt looks super. Just a footnote: you can add stars, 4 patches, 9 patches, twisters etc as cornerstones.

    I like it. I am often in favor of cornerstones, however.

    Smart move! You really pulled it together. I like to sew things in a flash too, but have found the value of corner stones myself. Congratz!

    The cornerstones are great. I love using them especially because it helps me to keep things alligned. Your cornerstones are a great accent. Darling quilt.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    The cornerstones really organize it for your eyes, don't they- Great move - and thanks for showing the contrast of before and after - we can all learn something here!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Maybe that is why I almost always use cornerstones! Anyone would love this.
