Henry's Quilt



I finally finished Henry's quilt! I haven't really been working on this all that long, but I really wanted to get it done! And I have to say, before anyone gets too impressed...the whole middle section is a panel. I didn't quilt all the cute little trains and things onto the blanket. But isn't it cute?

I'll back up a little. The new bunkbeds that we found for the boys' room needed comforters. When I brought them home, I didn't have sheets or anything that fit them! So I quickly ran to Walmart to get sheets, but I didn't like any of their comforters. So I headed to the fabric department. And this is what came of that trip! I started it and almost finished in the week before my brother came to visit, but then I had to put it on hold.

Now, my next project will be Jonah's blanket (and then a blanket for the third bunk!), but I don't know when I'll have the energy (and child-free time!) to get his done. For now, Henry is very excited just to use his new blanket!

What a darling quilt! I greatly admire your sewing talent and quilting talent! ALSO - your French bread looked WONDERFUL! I also love to bake! Do you share the recipe?

Wow- very impressive!!! You'll have to post pictures when you get the room finished.

I'm beginning to think God placed me in Michigan for a very good reason. You Texans are WAY too talented, quilting, the bread! It's fun getting to know you Lisa. Maybe some of your talents will filter my way through cyber space. Is there anything the Hasz family can't do?

Hey! Where is the picture? It looks like your mom saw it but I don't get a picture! Lisa, I am SO proud of you and the great job you did on the quilt. It is so cute and you will enjoy it for many years to come. Like Beth says- you amaze me with your multi-faceted (is that a real word?) talents!
