Weekend Toddler Quilt

So, on the ONE morning I ask my sweet hubby to watch the little guy so I could sleep in, he went in, said hi, then left for the bathroom, without removing my guy from the crib.  Can you guess what happened?  Yep, the little guy tried to go after his dad, and CRASH.  He fell out.  So that was the end of the crib for this worrisome momma.  So, we converted his crib to a toddler bed.  This called for a new quilt.  AND, I had been meaning to make him a new quilt for a long time so we could leave one at daycare rather than dragging it back and forth (i.e. forgetting it).

So, at  9 p.m. on a Friday night, I decided to use what I had, and try to make a quick quilt.  I knew I wouldn't have much time over the weekend cause hubby was out of town.  I decided to use flannel cause the other one he has is flannel and he loves the soft texture.  I called it quits at 3 a.m. that night, and at that point I had pieced the front and back, basted and started the quilting.

I didn't have time to get back to it until Sunday night, but I then finished the simple straight line quilting, and then sew on the binding by machine.  It was ready for the little guy in the morning.  He loved it!  Success!

 Of course, I had been dreaming/scheming of all the amazing quilts I could make him in my head and on Pinterest for a long time.  But, I just had to "get er done."  And I think it's simple but cute.

And I got to use my new label!  Didn't sew it on perfectly, but I love it.  

And here is the quilt on the bed with my guys special friends.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
