A finished Quilt or is it a blanket?

I have finally finished my oldest sons quilt! I may have started this when he was a toddler but he will start big school (primary school) in September! I am blaming time for how long this one took, has anyone else noticed how quickly time has been passing recently… In the last 2 years… ? I swear it is not my fault projects seem to take so long.

But here is my first ever finished quilt

Now technically this may not be a quilt as it has no wadding/batting and is not really quilted. It has a fleece back and the front is patchwork made from my sons baby clothes.

Now I am proud of this for several reasons:

1. It is my first ever FINISHED as in COMPLETED quilt!

2. It has appliqué on it in three different places and I can count on one hand how many times I have attempted appliqué.

  1. To me that’s true patchwork, pioneers going across the plains would have used whatever fabric etc that was available. I love your quilt.

  2. Congratulations on your finish. It’s beautiful. It will always be very special because of all the baby memories you have sewn into it. I think it’s brilliant!
