The twin bed quilt measures 60 by 87 inches.
|Children at Play|
My kids helped me layout the squares. The loft is my design wall when it is clean.
I made the the top within a couple of weeks,
but spent the rest of last year quilting it.
I added a few extras from Sarah Jane's blog.
Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter had made a cute baby quilt for Sarah's Market booth with an airplane design. I thought it would be perfect for the back.
I couldn't leave the back boring, right?
My SIL said surprise me and I guess I did. I got this note in return when her twin sister hand delivered it to her across the country after a visit. "I just about died when I opened the quilt, I literally almost lost my breath. Then when I turned it over, I almost flipped because I had seen and downloaded the paper airplane template online a long time ago from sarahjanestudios.com. I will have to write more later...." I am so happy I surprised you Becky! I love that you understand the homemade thing. I hope little Ben has many good sleeps under it.
My next two handquilting projects are my Single Girl, the hand quilting is halfway complete, (yay!), and my Granny square quilt.
