    This one is finished. I think every kids needs one of these. They are so much fun. You can do shapes, colors...ect. It has kept my son so busy. He even found his dad in it(the monkey that he calls his "monkey daddy")
    I got some close ups to show the quilting...which is kinda hard to see. It's hard to pick thread color for something like this, there are so many colors and I didn't want it to pop and have it harder to see the quilt. We want to play I spy with it.

    Now that is a great idea,and I'd like to try it. It would be fun to collect the fabrics and you'd only need a tiny bit of each one.

    Oh...how exciting!!!! Have fun with your new long arm. When I want something quick to do and don't have any tops ready, I just quilt on a solid. I can use it then for bags, mug rugs, and table toppers. I try not to ever "waste" quilting. I have even used the ugly fabric that I don't really want to use to make cats beds for the shelter.
    These quilts really are lots of fun for kids. I can't wait to see what yours look like. Make sure to post pics!!! :)
