Play Quilt for Robbie
Yesterday I found Robbie's play quilt while I was looking for something else... You may remember that I got these house blocks in a birthday swap in (oops) 2008. I made the quilt top at the retreat in 2009 and started quilting it in June 2010... I used some green polar fleece for the backing, but discovered that it was very stretchy and made the quilt very wobbly. I unpicked some of the quilting and then put it away. Until now - I decided to just finish it by turning the edges and stitch it with a zigzag. I know I am not going to spend a lot of time on making it look better and Robbie (and his brothers) like it anyway!
Robbie even wanted it on his bed when he went to sleep:
Next: the alphabet calligram quilt for Robbie! (he is going to have a proper quilt as well!)
