I had been shopping at Joann's and saw some fabric that was printed entirely with numbers.
I knew that it would be an utterly fantastic "whole cloth" quilt!
I backed it with fleece and quilted ginormous hearts in vertical columns.
I sure didn't want his older brother to get his nose out of joint by not receiving something himself, so I looked around and found a "friendly" Halloween print.
I backed this print with fleece also and quilted it by following the lines around the squares.
I sewed on my custom pirate tags when the binding went on.
Both quilts were SO quick and easy; they were done before I practically started.
It was a wonderful reminder that lovely, useful quilts don't need to be big or complicated or intricate to be appreciated.
Instant gratification for the quilter isn't necessarily a bad thing. :-)
