Cutest Dinosaur Quilt Ever!
Here’s a finish for this week. But we cannot take credit for the cutest dinosaur quilt ever. ~smile~ Our friend, Rosalie, made this dinosaur quilt for her nephew Forrest (Fox Edward‘s oldest brother!!). Forrest is visiting Rosalie and attending a week-long dinosaur school. This quilt is his ‘graduation’ present. It was truly a labor of love.
Rosalie chose the pattern called Play time, Nap time, Any time quilts by Kim Schaefer. This involved a lot of fun colored fabrics and plenty of appliqué. Each time I look at this quilt I pick a new favorite dinosaur. I can hardly wait to hear which one is Forest’s favorite.
Here’s a good shot of the ‘lady bug’ dino, a.k.a. pterodactyl (I believe). It also gives a peak for my first favorite, the yellow guy. I didn’t get a picture of the backing fabric unfortunately. It is words of all types of dinosaurs, spelled out in different color letters. Forrest, who is four, loves to read. I’m told that he will read every name on the back of the quilt. Over and over and over. He will also point out each matching figure on the front of the quilt, I would guess.
One other fun thing Rosalie made is a matching pillowcase. He will go to dreamland on his dinosaur pillowcase and under the quilt. Stitched with lots of love.
We gave Rosalie the name of our friends over at Corner to Corner Quilting Service (hi Ellen and Linda!). They quilted this quilt for Rosalie. Once she got it back, she added the binding and boom. Done! I definitely need to make one of these should Baby J show any interest in dinosaurs. Don’t you think this is just too darn cute?!
Thank you, Rosalie, for letting me share this on our blog. ~smile~
