Frogs & Snails and Puppy Dog Tails


....that's what little boys are made of.

I made my little grandson
this quilt.

 It is an adorable flannel print ~ I bought from Sewing World.

It was such a fun and very easy way to make a quilt.
I had no small pieces to cut or endless sewing.

All I did was ~

* sew the borders to the panel

* a local lady  (Penny- Beaverdam Quiltery Hand Guided Machine Quilting)
machine quilted the design of the buzzing bees.
She did an awesome job.

* I attached the binding to the front of the quilt by machine and then folded it to the back and hand stitched it in place.

* I embroidered his name on the back of the quilt.

He loved it! 


I haven't made many quilts ~  but I  enjoyed making this one so much that I have
 "four" more quilts being planned out :)
(Not panel quilts for these)


* one for my husband (African theme)
* one for Ella (monkey theme)
* one for Serena
* one for Duncan
* one for  Megan....

I see how this works, that's five...You can easily get carried away  :)

Thanks for the suggestion of a name for our new kid, we have a goat named Tiny already or I agree that would be perfect for him!
