So these were supposed to be for the boys’ fourth birthday. I worked on them with feline supervision.
I ran into what I thought was a calamity when two of the fairy tale fabrics I ordered turned out to be canvas. But then Ashley told me I could totally use canvas for a quilt. So I did. (The one on the right has the two canvas fabrics – Jack and the Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man – picked out by Little Buddha.)
I didn’t get these done in time for their fourth birthday. And then, having missed the deadline, I stalled out. I finally got them back out last month, and finished them with 8 days to spare before their fifth birthday. I love them very much.
