I have a SWEET little two year old grandson who loves dinosaurs. He has a grandma who loves to quilt. Put those two together and you get a dinosaur quilt for sure!
I was so happy to find the cutest little dinosaur panel at The Fat Quarter Shop online. The colors were just right for a little boy. I embroidered his name and added a bright railroad pieced edging to make it absolutely perfect:)
This is a snuggle quilt, so I used a bright green Shannon Minky in the back. Ooooh, it is so soft!
I opted for a freehand quilt pattern instead of an all over pattern because I didn’t want any stitching over the dinosaurs. I am really glad that I did. The dinosaurs are really accented now.
A new soft quilt needs a new soft pillow too. So of course I bought a little travel pillow made a new little pillow case as well.
I was so excited to give him his birthday quilt. It was definitely worth it when he opened the present and gasped with surprise and excitement:)
Happy birthday Declan! Now it is time to start a tractor quilt for my next SWEET two year old grandson #2. Yea! It’s always a Sweet day when there is a bit of time to create in it:)
Until next time!
