Check Mark!

Another one off my hug them all project. I call this Caleb! Caleb is my 4 year old nephew on my husbands side. This little kiddo is constantly on the go! So the colors and patterns I choose were bright, cheerful and full of energy.

I did this disappearing nine patch quilt as part of Obsessively Stitching's quilt along.

And even though this was not my first quilt ever, it was fun to do a traditional quilt for the first time.

This is the back.

I still need to add his name to it. I need red thread. I think I am going to hand stitch it on.

This is the quilt top I started today. It is for my 6 year old nephew Adien. I am calling it Big Little Boy. 6 is about the age when kids start thinking they are to big for mom and cartoons and early bedtimes, hence the name. So I combined fabrics you might use for a younger boy with fabrics for an older boy. It is all made from scraps I had. But I do need to get more white for the rest of the sashings.
Here is a close up of what I mean by the little boy fabrics, the zoo print in green and the big boy prints, the black, red and gray skulls.

I have also started cutting for the next online quilt along I am doing. It is over at Crazy Mom Quilts. This one I am giving a red, white and blue color scheme for the upcoming holiday. I promised myself that if I got Tayas, Baileys and Calebs quilt done that the next quilt I did would be mine. So this one is for me, well sort of, for my family room which is decorated in a star red white and blue theme.

Happy crafting!
