My niece requested a quilt for her son ... he's moving into his "big boy bed." I actually don't get a lot of requests from family members to make quilts. SHOCKING! - I know, who wouldn't crave a fabulous quilt, especially one made by me? My sister (Goofy #1) has received 12 out of 14 requested quilts. Go read this and this ... it will make more sense.
OK ... all family members reading this (and there aren't many) - get in line!
Anyway - AJ loves anything with wheels so here it is ...
I backed it with Minki. It's oh-so soft and the quilting really shows up on the back.
This is a fast-pieced quilt ... I used a panel. I figured he would outgrow his love of "things with wheels" and this quilt would get packed away so I did pick EASY! And ... remember this basket of binding? I used up 265" of scrappy binding.
OK ... I just reread that part. Who am I kidding? The Cute Husband just got his quilt for Christmas 2010 and he certainly has NOT outgrown his love of "things with wheels."
