Devon and football

Devon's quilt is quilted!  It was handed back to me at our Bee meeting last night.

Catherine did a great job making footballs in the gray open spaces.  And then she put stars in the red spaces.  Good idea, Catherine!

I had the binding ready, made from the same flannel as the backing, lots of helmets and footballs there.

Today I trimmed the quilt, applied the binding and then gave it a good wash and dry.

I hope Devon likes his name spelled out on the quilt as much as I do.

Final size: 44" x 75", bigger than Margaret's Hope Chest required, but he's turning 12, so a growing boy..

Great finish! That's one lucky boy.
