Twice As Nice

I loved the first patchwork quilt with these fabrics so much, I made another one for my soon-to-be arriving nephew! It has minky on the back, which of course Mr. L. thinks is the best part of the entire quilt! I love the little patchwork squares within the squares--perhaps my favorite part. I hope they like it!Lesson Learned: Patchwork is fun, quick, and easy. Making quilts is also addicting, as I just wanted to sit down and do it, from start to finish. Having a toddler paint, do play dough, use stamps, and draw right next to you is a bit nerve wracking (imagining paint, even "washable" paint, spilled near your quilt makes your heart beat a bit faster) but greatly enhances your quilting time.
