    A second February finish!! (SUPER BRIGHT!!)

    This is a small toddler bed quilt for my 2.5 year old son. He's been insisting that I make him his own "krilt", and we humor our tiny overlord! Get your shades on...it's a colorful one!

    The back is just as bright solid orange, stitched in turquoise:

    Thanks, friends. I think he will love it. Finished it at 9--after his bedtime, when all quilting takes place, LOL. It's in the wash now and he will be dragging it around come sunrise.

    Aww, Sarah!! This is only the 5th quilt I have pieced, and it's only 36x40"! It *seems* easy because I didn't really tell how may seams I had to rip out, how wonky my squares were, or how many times I cussed.
    Also...if you saw it close up, you'd see that EVERY point is lost. I don't think a single one of the HST's meets where it's supposed to, and I zoomed out to make sure no one can see that part too easily!
    But, the only person who will be looking at it doesn't really care where the seams are.
    I'm going to try to get a picture of him with it today!

    Things got a lot easier for me when I realized who rules the roost.

    That's a knock out design. I'm sure he'll love it to death.

    It is beautiful and if he likes his "knilt" that is all that matters; I love it!
