Walking With Dinosaurs

One more nephew has a birthday coming up...this time, it's my great-nephew and he will be all of one year old! I made a rag quilt for his sister (who will be here soon!) and thought I'd make one for him as well. But a little more "boy-ish", of course:'s a friendly dinosaur......And now a close-up on the face:

Um, can I just say how much I lovelovelove these rag quilts? They're a bit time consuming but sooooo worth least I think so....This one went a bit easier than the last one as I sorta/kinda knew what I was doing. Sorta/kinda. At least I didn't get completely stressed out and have to look up words like "baste" and "chain stitch".

Let's look at some more pictures, shall we? The top half:

And the booty half:

And this is the back of the quilt:

My nephew's birthday party is tomorrow and hopefully he'll like it. Well, as much as a one year old can like a blanket. I've got lots of birthdays and gifts to make in April. Time to get busy!


  1. That is one of the cutest and most unique blankets I've ever seen! Darling!

  2. Thanks everyone! Stay tuned...more cute stuff to come ;)
