Quilting a Comforter
Well, this was interesting. My five year old grandson is sleeping in a queen bed and was using a small full size quilt I made him a couple years ago. I pondered making a new quilt for him, but queen? Oh my goodness, I thought about the time and expense, and honestly, it didn't make sense to create a true quilt. I went to our town's version of a mall... a KMart... the only store we have in town other than a Home Depot and two grocery stores...but hey, I am not complaining... when we moved here we had none of the above! They had the perfect comforter, navy blue, at a perfect price, $30!
I wish now I had planned this better, and might have skipped the flame borders. Now, I do love them, I am just not 100% happy with the way they blend with the super huge meander in the center. I toyed with the idea of no quilting in the center, just a few more stars, but that didn't seem the perfect fit either.
So, here it is, all done, and I am sure my little guy will LOVE this rocket and the flames and his name on it! He is going to get the same flame fabric on his pillow cases.
