From start to finish in three days!

A local family is adopting a special little boy. Their friends held a spaghetti dinner to help with the expenses and asked for raffle/silent auction contributions, so I donated a small Christmas quilt. The mom e-mailed to thank me, saying that she'd been tempted to keep it for Jeremy. She'd been able to make blankies for her biological children, but didn't have time now. What could I do but create a quilt just for him?

I pulled out novelty prints on Wednesday evening and by last night I had finished (quilting, binding, label). It's 49 x 49.

I'm considering making a lot of these little blocks in advance so I'll have them on hand when I need a baby/kid quilt in a hurry.


  1. Oh how nice! That is so wonderful you made one for him!

  2. Wow, I am impressed that you were able to get this finished in such a short period of time. Great job! I see those books in there!
