Granted quilts take a lot of work and a lot of time and are harder to work on, especially when you are trying to keep it a secret from a little boy who does NOT nap! Goodness me! This one has been one of my goals for several quarters. but this last one was it!
Little Man's Dinosaur quilt.
We picked up this awesome panel when I took my first trip out to the local quilt shop shortly after moving into the area, about 2 years ago... I couldn't decide what to do with it and finally picked up some fabrics on the quilt shop hop in November 2013.
Then, it was just finding time to work on it.
The border is done in two different batiks and sorry that I cannot remember who did those batiks. But they just fit so nicely!
The backing is a minky fabric. Perfect size and just so cuddly soft! I also wrapped it around to the front for the binding.
For the quilting I just stitched the ditch on the borders and free motioned around the dinosaurs. I love the way it looks on the back!
And now, to give it to him. Since it was supposed to be a birthday present in 2013, I have no idea when to give it to him. I'm thinking for a road trip we will be taking in July? That way I don't have to hide it any longer...
I'm excited to be able to knock another finish off my list. It's slowly decreasing and I am not planning on adding anything to it anytime soon... ;)
