Description

Saw this pattern at the fabric store and I immediately thought of my nephew's baby boy and also my daughter who was a junior in high school at the time. I made one for my great-nephew (is that what I call him?) first and then one for my daughter. I also made two extra blocks and made those into travel-sized pillow cases for her to give to a couple of her friends. She initially said she was definitely taking it to college but I wondered if she'd change her mind. I asked her recently and she said she wasn't sure. A few days later she found out who she would be rooming with and asked them what they thought of the quilt. They loved it and so she's taking it with her. It's fleece and backed with fleece so is very very warm. It'll be nice for those cold winter nights.

It was so heavy to work with and some of the circles were so small I didn't go a good job of stitching around the applique pieces but she loves it and my great nephew loves his too.

Too cute...so sweet that your daughter is taking it to college.

HawkFan

Mymble Yeah, I'm a little surprised but she likes to do goofy things like that as long as her roommates didn't think she was weird

Mymble

No..goofy is such an integral part of college...at least it was for me:)

This is too cute. I think I'm getting a bigger kick out of your daughter bringing it to college. She will be the talk of the dorm!

HawkFan

Thanks ShellyT

HawkFan

Terryt1955 - yeah, it's one thing to have it at home since all her friends know this goofy side. Guess her room and dorm mates will get to know it too! Add in the cow print on the pillow I'm going to send later and she may never live it down.

True

I totally missed this one do not know how!! I love it and love that she has it with her at school...Mom is right there with her!

HawkFan

Thanks True . She's still a little kid at heart some times (& I guess her roommates are too)

So cute! If I was in a dorm, I'd totally bring it with me.

HawkFan

Thanks sew_what - it's always funny to see it in the background when she texts me pictures.
