Doll Quilt But Now With A Y Chromosome

Obviously the pink quilt simply would not work for the quilt swap since there seems to be a plethora of little boys over at my swap partner's house. We'll just have to make good use of the completed pink quilts over here...and since we don't seem to be short of stuffed bears or dolls I don't see a problem. And neither will they.

So, it's been big fun to come up with a plan for a doll quilt for a little boy.

Here is what I have so far...bright colors with one whimsical helicopter and plane print added in for fun. Notice my Heather Bailey quilt binding instructions? They rock. And once I really read them for the 8th time AND marked where the final stitch would go with a pen on the end of the worked.

I'm thinking little squares again...since honestly I'm just not sure if I'm quite capable of anything else yet that is more complicated. Math+rotary cutter+perfectly measured pieces = not me!

But I'm trying. And that's what counts right? Just tell me yes to humor me.

More later as I pull this heap of material into something like a little quilt for teddy bears.

Hey, I've been meaning to comment and thank you for the adorable messenger bag. I love the pink and black, and the Chinese kids fabric is adorable. It is very sturdy too. I took it as my carryon/laptop bag when I flew up to visit my sister last weekend and it was perfect for the job. I was so excited to when my sister told me she bought it for me. Thanks so much!

I love the fabrics.

Can I link your craft site to mine?
