He loves it

I was able to finish Addison's duvet cover today. I am so pleased with the way it came out, and so is he.


I backed it with a vintage sheet and added buttonholes at the top. I loved the combination of fabrics he picked out. I used a white cotton that I got at Joann's for the sashing.









I loved making it for him. I think I would have done it without the "please."

I love it, too. As if the pattern and the fabric weren't brilliant enough, the little red buttons are the perfect touch. Wonderful job.

Oh Phil, that's an awesome quilt. Addison has fantastic taste in matching colors. Perhaps he can help me next time I'm wandering aimlessly at the fabric store.

So beautiful. Great GREAT job.

FANTASTIC!

Meagan said...

I just love it, I am so proud of you! (in a loving, excited way, not meant to sound condescending!) I remember when you were just learning to sew, now you effortlessly whip up any delight you can imagine, isn't it fun? To be able to make things?!? This is such a great gift for the babes, they can cherish them forever. My fave part is that sweet little face peeking out from under the cover, and that he still sleeps on the inside of the bed-how can he be 5 already!?!

Holy cow Katie! How do you always manage to get so much done?! It's adorable and he looks adorable under it. Clearly, I need to get a move on and do something about all the projects I have stacked up and waiting!

I really like it! Everything you do is so wonderful. I love reading your blog, you inspire me to be a better mom, wife and I am learning new creative things which I did not even think about.

hooli said...

Wow! You are so speedy. If I could finish a project that fast my boys would be sleeping under quilts I've made. But oh no... they have unfinished edges on scraps of fleece that they picked out at JoAnn's. I'm pathetic.

Marcia said...

So cute! Love the colors and the fact that he appreciates being wrapped in his mother's love literally.
