Jimmy got the most wonderful gift. A quilt made by two of my Mom's sisters and her God-daughter. It's perfect and farm-y and boyish and beautiful.
Look at this fantastic fabric!
It's all hand quilted by my Aunt Vernie, with a special surprise Powercat quilted into one of the blocks.
Go Cats! :)
It has Sawtooth Star blocks, which my Mom loved, and Log Cabin blocks, one of my favorites, and adorable appliqued lambs, which is perfect because I just learned to do this kind of applique this summer! I asked my Aunt Nadine a question about it, and she told me later it was funny because she was working on Jimmy's appliques right when I asked.
I'm terrible about labeling my quilts-but I'm so glad they did. And I can't help but admire those perfect mitered corners on that tiny binding. Someday...
Jimmy loves it too.
