A new quilt

My first new quilt for 2012, made by me for my youngest son. The fabric is called Children at play and it is so sweet.

I made a simple row of sqaures with sashing in between, these quilts are quick to put together.




Look at these little boys, so cute...




And these ones, they remind me of my 3 boys when they were little. Except there would have been some arguing thrown in there somewhere. Probably over who could hold the rocket.







I found this binding fabric at spot light in the clearance bin for $2 a metre, it works beautifully around the quilt.









I was having some fun this morning taking my photos and thought the quilt would sit nicely in the flower pot stand.











I love photos of quilts all rolled up. Today I hope to finish my Scrap Jars quilt, just the borders to go. I can't wait to show you all.

Have a wonderful day and I hope you find some sewing time.
