    I was able to make 2 sports quilts from the donated fabric that I received from some very generous quilters. Thank you so much for helping me out.
    I had to make 2 because when little man sew the fabric he just had to have 1 for himself. The first one is for my DH's nephew in Seattle, Wa.
    The second 1 is for little man. He had to pose with his quilt.
    Before anyone says anything I goofed on the first one> I was intending to put a border on it but forgot and didn't realize until I had sandwiched it and was binding it. I didn't feel like taking it all apart cause thequiling was all done . I did SID on both. Didn't do too bad as I am still learning.
    Thank You for looking. I will have to post twice too many pics

    Those are so cute. I love your quilts. By the way, my quilts never have mistakes, they have things that make them unique. Keep the mistakes and love them. They teach us.

    Ok now I am frustrated!!!!! As I was loading the dishwasher I realized that I forgot to put the label on the 1st quilt. Atleast it will be simple to add it. Thank you to everyone for your nice comments and for reminding me that they are not mistakes but lessons. This is what I get for making 2 quilts at the same time.

    Let me tell you what he did yesterday. I gave him the quilt and he sat on the couch with it on him, Its not cold in here. His daddy came over and said is mommy done with my quilt. Eli grabbed his quilt and ran to me whinning because daddy thinks it is his. Well I was trying to find it today cause I need to wash it. Well little man had hid it behind his toys so his Daddy couldn't find it. Wants to make sure his Daddy can't get anywhere near it. So I guess you could say little man likes it. :lol: :thumbup:

    Nice work on both. Mistakes are part of what makes a quilt. We are our own worst enemy when it comes to finding the mistakes, so don't fret over it.
    btw - I recognize the one fabric - seems I have a bit of it. LOL and I've used it!

    That's funny. Did you really use it? I am sure there wasn't much of it, just a little scrap. Can't remember what all I tried to protect the mini with. :-)

    They are both adorable. How cute little man is and his reaction to his daddy's question is so funny. By the way, love the column of double sashing on his quilt--very artsy.

    Thank You. I was wondering if anybody would notice, that was the mistake that I liked.
