baby boys quilt

i finally finished up baby boys quilt. i don't know why it took me so long to get the binding on, just putting it off. but its a relief to have it done. i would change a few things about this quilt, but all in all I'm pleased. the colors are showing up a bit brighter than they really are, like the orange. yikes its bright, but not so much in real life. i made this blanket with no intention of it to be for the his room, just a cuddle blanket of his own. i made the girls their own quilts for Christmas and didn't want this little boy to miss out. it is super long and will make for a good play mat.

I'm thinking I'm diggin the back more than the front.

i learned new things about binding, even though it was my 4th quilt to bind. its getting easier and easier. this series of videos helped me out a lot. finally, someone to explain mitered corners step by step. it is alot easier than i thought.


I'm so in love with elephants. somehow i want to incorporate them into the little mans room. and i couldn't help myself with the bird and balloon fabric. it fit into the quilt so well.

oh, i love a sight such as this. makes me want to snuggle him up.
