And I made one for Kaity.
It was nice to see her open it. Kids have to me, a surprising reaction to getting a quilt. Usual things that kids like, like electronics and gifts of games or music cards are always a hit, but a quilt is different. They like it, but are more appreciative when they get to take it home and try it on their bed.
Then I did a couple for the sweeties in Minnesota.
I tried something different with this baby's quilt, doing outline of critters for quilting. I haven't been brave enough to do free motion quilting because I haven't the patience to practice, but some day I am going to have to force myself to try.
This was a new concept for me. I tried using patriotic colors, red and blue for the US, with gold for the Spanish flag included. I had a pattern as arranged above, but when sewing strips together managed to confuse myself and put it together wrong. I didn't switch it back because I realized after too much work to rip it out. Learning experience for me, as each quilt is when I try something new.
It's still bright and interesting and will keep a little boy warm.
