David's Quilt is done!

David's birthday party is tomorrow morning and I'm very happy to say that I'm done with his quilt and matching pillowcase :) I can't wait for him to see it. He's 4 years old and still gets excited about things like this and he picked out the fabric so I know he's going to be happy!

The fabric is 100% organic cotton from Robert Kaufman's "Ready Set Go" collection :)

I used size 8 Perle cotton in co-ordinating colors to hand quilt it.

I love the patterns it made on the backside :)

And of course, I stitched a little note onto the back so that David can always remember that Nana stitched lots of love into his quilt :)


  1. oh Karen it is so adorable he is going to cherish it!

  2. It is adorable. And you are getting sooo good at that handquilting! He'll love it!
    Denise thinks so too.

  3. It turned out really cute Karen! I'm sure he'll love it! Great job Nana! :)

  4. Karen the quilt is so cute. I love the colors, and the note on the back is priceless.

  5. The pictures do not do the quilt justice :-). It is absolutely gorgeous. I think that I might have been bitten by the quilting bug :-)!

    You have inspired me! As always...thank you 'sew' much for sharing, teaching and motivating me. I so enjoy sewing and your blog too :-)!

  6. It's fabulous and I'm sure David LOVED it! The hand stitched note is just the perfect touch. He will always know his Nana loves him! So sweet!
