    it came out wonderfully
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Skillfully done! Kudos to you and to your granddaughter for her pillow contribution. Can't go wrong with starting 'em young. :-)

    Congratulations to your GS and also to his sister for making a super pillow. Both of his gifts are wonderful reminders of how much he is loved. I would love to see the label close up. BrendaK

    Love the quilt, nicely done. I have one question...did you use fleece on the back, and if so did you use any batting?

    I used a mid weight flannel. His mother also wanted batting as he likes lots of warmth.
