Birthday Quilt

February 24, 2010

I have the best best best boys in the whole world, I’m convinced.  They are sweet, caring, creative, funny, and just plain wonderful.

Ethan, my oldest, is turning 4 in a few weeks.  I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, and this is what he said.  “Mama, all I want for my birthday is for you to make me a quilt.  That’s all I want.  Nothing else.”  My heart melted!!  No toys or books or movies.  Just a mama-made quilt.  So we went to work together to pick out a pattern and some fabric that would be just what he had in mind.  Here’s what we came up with!

The pattern I’ll be making is the pinwheel one at the bottom.  Ethan has a special place in his heart for “spinners.”  I found it at http://www.etsy.com/shop/thimbleblossoms.  I think I could have purchased every pattern in that shop!

And here’s the fabric we chose.  The red & yellow flowers will be the quilt back, the solid yellow will be the background for the pinwheels, and the Happy Campers charm pack will make up the pinwheels themselves.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
