I am beyond the moon excited to show you guys Carson’s finished quilt!!!
(Remember it was one of my New Year’s Resolutions?)
Are you ready?
It is exactly what I was hoping for and looks perfect in his room!
I had a vague idea in my mind of how I wanted this quilt to look, and had been looking and looking for the right pattern.
As soon as I saw the “Baby Steps” one, I knew it was exactly what I wanted.
I added two extra rows to make it a little longer. The pattern was so easy to follow that I was able to whip up the quilt top in one day. (Of course it did help that my mom was in town so she could play with the kids while I sewed).
As soon as I finished the top, I took it to Material Girls in South Jordan, Utah where you can drop of your quilts to be “free-motion quilted” by Wendy of Eagle Mountain Quilting.
I am thrilled with the sports pattern I chose!
My son loves fleece and similar soft fabric, so I put minky on the back and was so happy that the pattern showed up just as well on that fabric!
Wendy had it done within a week!
As soon as I got it back, I hand-stitched the binding and couldn’t wait to get it on Carson’s bed.
It turned out better than I could have ever hoped for and is one of my favorite projects to date!!!
(My son also loves it, which makes my heart so happy!)
