James' first quilt

James managed to finish his quilt last week, but we're still waiting for slightly cooler weather to wash his quilt and put it in the dryer to rag it up nicely.


That hasn't stopped him from using it. Or from starting a new quilt for Bec (the rabbit pictured on the sewing machine while he was sewing; his favourite toy). This one will be a 'real' quilt, but is still a 6x6 square layout, though the squares are smaller. He's using the remaining butterfly print so it matches his quilt, and chose 3 coordinating Sandi Henderson prints (nice taste, James!) from my stash to go with it

James, you can be very proud of yourself for making that handsome quilt. Bec will sure be surprised to get the next quilt you're making! I bet he'll be hopping up and down with happiness!
