Here’s 2 quilt tops for quilts for my boy – both started before I knew if he’d be a girl or a boy. Or, indeed, if he would ever come.
They were quilted on my good friend’s big, giant quilting machine, Bertha. This was done less than a week before he arrived, although I thought I’d have another couple weeks!

They both have a flanelette backing, and at 2 1/2 he still uses them (but will quickly outgrow them).
