Puppy dog’s tails; that’s what little boys are made of.” Isn’t that how the first part of that old saying goes???? Well, my latest finish is the cutest (should I be saying “handsome-est”?) little man’s quilt ever (my estimation, only…LOL!). A friend just had a new grandson a while back….his first! So I thought something special was in order. As this little one is not really a baby, but more a toddler, and summer is coming up (the little one lives in Indiana) I thought that maybe a small cuddle quilt that would have an “older boyish” feel would be a tad more appropriate. Having these in my stash (and changing from their original plan of becoming a quilt for a G.Grand of ours , but there is a darling 2nd little girl on the way, due in July!), a fun time of deciding a layout began……It came together quickly (I started this last Thursday, finished and out of the dryer today!)! A photo “run-down” of the finish……………
The plaid sashings and binding is some Thimbleberry fabric from a Christmas line of long ago! The backing is a flannel piece that I had from making bathrobes for our boys (does that give you a hint as to age of the fabric?? At least 35 years!!!)…..
The quilting was done with poly quilting thread from Connecting Threads. I’ve used it once before and, so far, am liking it. The stitching is a loopy meander and I did a “dog bone” shape in the triple border….fun! It’s all washed and dried, crinkly cozy and ready for gifting (label to be applied as soon as I have a few details on the recipient).
Photos may be enlarged by clicking on them. Lots of weekend remains……..I think a jaunt on the motorcycle is needed!…………..
