…that’s what little boys and this quilt are made of.
Here’s my latest creation. When I first bought this charm pack, Lil’ Rascals from the Fat Quarter Shop, I wasn’t sure about it. The big prints were super cute but the others seemed dull and almost boring. I put it away for a little while but then “rediscovered” it the other day.
We have new neighbors and they just had a baby boy. I thought this would be a nice welcome to the neighborhood/baby gift.
Now that it’s all pieced together I think it’s so “soft” and sweet but still boyish enough.
My only hesitation was the image of the little cowboy (top left) holding the toy gun. The PC side of me is a bit worried the new parents may take offense but I’m also thinking I’m over thinking. What do you all think?
The rest of the images are so adorable and innocent and classic little rascals.
I’m so glad I decided to give this another look.
This is the backing fabric. Fat Quarter had some of the prints available by the yard. This one was my favorite.
Last Thursday afternoon I took a Free Motion Quilting class at The City Quilter in NY. What timing!! I can’t wait to try out some of the things I learned. What a class!!! The first time I took a free motion class I was a rank beginner and was using my Brother machine. I was miserable. I think I was expecting to be good at it right away but instead I was so endlessly frustrated. Since then I’ve practiced, a lot, now own a Bernina (the same model used in the class) and I’m now a bit less fearful to “mess up”.
I can’t wait to get this sandwiched and on my machine…
