Let’s hear it for the quilt . . . and the boy

A finished quilt! For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to make a cute, easy little boy quilt with kits available in my etsy shop. Voila! Finally, it is done. I love it. And I’m having a harder time letting it go than I thought I would.
The quilt itself is also for sale.  The back is this happy Ikea print. 
Other fabrics include bright boy-themed prints from Wheels by Riley Blake and Traffic Jam by Windham Fabrics.
 Quilt and limited number of kits available here.

Also, today is the anniversary of the day I got my first sweet boy.  All 10 pounds of him arrived fast and furious in the early morning hours.  I think I’ve been tired ever since. 🙂 This boy can go from sunshine to thunder storms in 0-60 seconds.  I’ll be honest, sometimes I wonder if I’ll have the stamina to raise him.  But everyday before he goes to school he wants to rub noses with me and gives me a big hug and a kiss that melts my heart. At that moment, it’s all worth it.

    darling quilt! i need to make my little guy a new quilt. A bigger one mostly – he loves the one he already has. <br /><br />Is this what I have to look forward to with an April baby? She was measuring 8 pounds 2 weeks ago!

    Awwwhhh Amy!<br /><br />This post brought tears to my eyes! You know that I have soft spot for little boys and anything &quot;boy related&quot;. So when I read it, I thought of my guy and the same feelings!<br /><br /><br />BTW-I always love to see &quot;Boy&quot; quilts. There just aren&#39;t enough of them out there!<br /><br />Happy Birthday to your Little Guy.

    I love this quilt!! We have the Ikea duvets too and I just finished one of the twin quilts for my boys bunk beds. I&#39;m loving the Traffic Jam collection. I will look perfect with the duvets for when it gets colder. I used all the blues on one..and all the reds on the other. You can take a peek at the blue one here…<br />http://thefluffynest.blogspot.com/2010/07/boys-new-quilts.html<br /><br
