This is a quilt that I made for my Dear little boy Sam.
This is Sam when he had just turned 2.
I specifically purchased a "Silly Safari" Jelly Roll to make him a quilt for when he went into a single bed.
I used a pattern from a Jelly Roll book and I was worried that it was too bright and wouldn't promote a restful sleep so I surrounded it with the medium blue sashing and the dark blue borders and backing.
Now some of you may be thinking that the borders are so big and it looks a little odd but it fits so perfectly on his bed. The coloured bit sits perfectly on the top of the bed and the dark blue provides a perfect amount of overhand so that it covers him totally even when he rolls around (which he tends to do alot).
I was quite heavily pregnant when I was making this quilt as Sam was 2 in April 09 and Jess was born March 09 and I wanted to get it done before I went to hospital.
The quilting is very simple. I quilted in the ditch around the log cabins and then some wavy FMQ on the large borders. It's not the best FMQ and I have learnt alot since then but he loved it and he moved into his "Big Bed" in February 2009 without a whimper.
This quilt also won 1st place in it's category at our local show, don't get too excited it's a very small show but it wasn't the only quilt in it's category so I was happy, I got the news in hospital after having Jess so it was a celebration all around.
So that's my quilt, thank you to anyone who stops by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the festival.
Anyone who is waiting to hear about my SMS Giveaway's please stay tuned, I am waiting for the kids to wake up so I can get all the goodies together and take a photo.
