Happy Birthday, Miles!


Miles was born on December 19th and this year the celebration of his birth two years ago will be held today.

I don't believe he is ready to move into a big boy bed quite yet, but when that time comes, he'll have a quilt.

I loved making this quilt. The pattern was for a crib-size quilt, so I made the blocks and sashes bigger and added a generous border. The background is a nice gray Kona and everything else is batik. Everything is hand-buttonhole stitched. The machinist used a meander pattern. Please look at some of the monsters up close and personal. They won't bite!

Oh, Nancy, this is just adorable! (Although I'm not sure the Monsters would like being called adorable - LOL) I think the quilting design is perfect for the pattern. Happy Birthday, little Miles!
