Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival

Here is my latest finish that i actually wasn't going to blog about till i finished another one just like it for his brother... but i really do think this one is awesome so here it is.

It is a small twin quilt. The boys have bunk beds and what mom can get their kids to make the bunk bed, with this quilt it will cover the bed but thats about it, Its 52X70 they can straighten them out without all that tucking and room will look put together.

The two boys (5 and 6) are my grand children. They belong to Travis and Bridgette (one is his and one is hers but the cool thing is they are both ours! lol) I started them a while ago but just now finished this one, I have the border yet to put on and then quilt on the other one.

 The quilt is entirely from recycled fabrics. It is called Kisses from Paw Paw because the X's are from my husbands shirts (the man holding the quilt up) the white were sheets found in the bargain bin at goodwill. The yellow on the back was actually a sheet i bought recently at a yard sale. I love the texture of that sheet, its really soft.

I quilted it on my machine in easy straight lines.

I am hoping to have both finished by christmas so i can give them the  quilts this year. For now, its what i wake up to every morning, its hanging over the railing next to me... it makes me smile

Ooh, I love this. And the name of it is perfect. Love the idea you made it from their Papaw's shirts. Awesome!

I love that the two boys are "OURS' !

Those are going to look great on the bunks, and I can just imagine how soft they must feel with the sheets you incorporated into them.
