Finish It Up Friday ~ I Spy

My biggest November goal has been met with the completion of this quilt for my grandson, Little L.

The pattern (yes, I actually followed one) is Once Upon a Time by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle.

I free hand quilted this in a bit of an elongated meander. I love how the back turned out!

I bought a bag full of these novelty prints at a yard sale and all I had to do was trim them down with my Accuquilt studio cutter. Such a time saver! BTW, from now until November 30th, they have free shipping on any size order.

This will be going on a bunk bed, so I didn’t want it to be too big.

I think he can use it either way.

The background is a dark gray Kona cotton, maybe Coal? It does look black in some of these photos, but it isn’t.

I can wait to see my little boy and give this to him!

Have a great day!
