Elijah Boo, This One's For You

Weeks ago, I unearthed a collection of 6" HSTs in CW colors. I had no idea what I had planned to do with them at the time that I made them. I waited a little while and when no remembrance came, I started putting them together and liked what I was seeing.

My youngest grandson takes a nap at "school" during the afternoon, and I asked my dear DIL if he needed a quilt for those naps. With her affirmative response, I added a couple of carefully chosen borders and took the quilt off to Mary Ellen to machine for me.



It came home on Wednesday and the next night I made and machined on the binding. The past two nights while watching "West Wing" on Netflix, I got the hand-stitching finished. 

This is a photo of the back; if you click to make it larger, you can see the beautiful leaves motif that Mary Ellen quilted. I don't think Eli will care. But I do.

Elijah Boo-u-ti-ful! It's quite handsome, Nancy, and looks so soft and warm already. Lovely colors.

Mmm, lovely. I think it's going to be well lived.

Very nice indeed - and yes, the quilting DOES matter (to anyone and everyone who comes in contact with the quilt, whether they realize it or not).

It is just a lovely quilt and will go well with its owner who is also lovely. Sothemeone should take a picture of him under it.
