Sew Crafty Friday

I have been posting about the progress on a quilt I was making for someone who requested a "boyish" quilt for her four year old grandson. This is the finished product.



I really love the fabric used for the outside border and the backing. It was one of the fabrics featured in the "quilt of the month" at the Walmart fabric department for December. It is designed to use in quilts, is 100% cotton and is only $2.00 per yard. When I pre-washed it I was really surprised at how soft it turned out. I think it will feel so good for a little boy to cuddle with!

Here is the link for the pattern again: Patches for Chris.
