    Oh so cute! What a little munchkin! But how long will the room stay tidy? You may have to make him another quilt next week! LOL

    Gee, my son is 37 - think it will work for him? He lives by himself and his sister cleans for him!!! She says he is bad!! When he was a teen I thoroughly cleaned his room 2 x a year - scrubbed everything. That was one room in the house that the door was often shut!

    Adorable quilt and almost missed his cute little head peeking out - he is adorable too.

    thanks ya'll! He was so anxious for me to finish that quilt! He picked the pattern and the fabric (with some help). So it really is "his" quilt. Oh and he did plenty of inspecting to make sure it was going together right and wouldn't be "bumpy".....lol.

    He is just a doll. Love your quilt too. I can see by his face how much he loves it. You're right, that makes all the work worth while.

    Gosh golly, he looks cozy! I can't wait until I finish my first quilt (the top is done but I'm nervous about adding the backing, the batting, and stitching in the ditch!!) and can have the kids do a major monkey snuggle (I told my kids that my very first quilt would be for everyone...I can only hope it turns out half as nice as yours!)

    This is the first bed quilt I've done by myself. My 10yo dd and I made her one though so I did most of it. I just started last year. You can do it! Quilting is taking over any spare time I have lol.

    That is priceless! My kids love their quilts too, and have actually started asking for new ones. I've thougth about doing a "hope chest" for both of them (9 year old girl and 7 year old boy)to take with them when they graduate college adn actually live on their own.

    They love to point their quilts out to friends adn say that their mom made them!

    Congrats, and your son is so cute!
