Happy Boy!





















Here's my happy boy with his new train quilt - all finished, including his name and year written on the back with a pigma pen!

The blue fuzzy fabric was hard to sew, but I managed with my walking foot and a bigger seam allowance. And - it made things a bit crooked... It won't win any "awards", but it sure wins a special spot in Little Boy's heart, which is really all that matters anyway! I stitched in the ditch along the outside of the novelty panel - just enough stitching to hold it together straight for washing.

Even though I didn't like the blue fabric (except it is ever so soft) - it was worth the effort - he loves it! Look at that smile!!!


More info: The final border is maybe a velour? Not sure! The backing is flannel. Posted by Picasa

Oh my - what a gorgeous smile to go along with a sweet little (growing) boy and his new acquisition. What type of 'fuzzy' fabric did you back it with?

That IS a Happy Little Boy! Is that stuff Minkee? I keep seeing it in the quilting catalogs but never have seen it in person.

What a very happy little boy. He is so cute and very proud of his new quilt. He is lucky to have a mommy like you. You can never spoil with to much love.

Aww, he's really growing. It seems like when I first started seeing him on your blog, he was just a toddler, now he looks more 'boy' lol
