birthday quilt


Here is the lap quilt for my birthday boy who will be 3 on Sunday.

I'm so glad I started this early enough as you see I've finished with just a few more days to go. The hand-sewing of the binding took forever (okay 8 days) but I worked on other things too and of course life and kids and such.

I'd like to sew him a robot (since he is having a robot party) to go with Spaceboy but, we will see how the week plays out.

It feels so good to have accomplished this and I really love how it came out although I wouldn't say it was perfect. It's my first quilt and, it was my resolution to make a quilt in 2008. So, I can check that off the list.
I can assure you it will not be my last quilt either.

I hope my little boy loves it as much as I do and that it keeps him warm and cozy for years to come. He is all into making nests to stay warm and cozy.
