Done .....

Well, another quilt down....
This one is for my Grandson, Royce....
It's for his birthday....and I'm afraid that by the time he gets it, he will no longer be that excited about dinosaurs! Just yesterday, he was Batman...and his mom said...yeah...moving on to superheroes.....
Sadness....
But, he can enjoy for a time, then it can go to Ryan...when Ryan is into dinosaurs....
Oh Well...
This quilt took me months to make...each appliquéd dinosaur took roughly 35 minutes.
The main body part is a panel...obviously...chosen months and months ago at a craft fair.
I did echo quilting around each appliqué and some of the printed dinosaurs....then all over meandering quilting....
I also played with different techniques on the border...some worked...some didn't...but I felt an almost 4 year old wouldn't care, right?? The main part of quilting is to get it done so it can live the life its meant to....keep him warm when he needs it and be a castle, or a cape or whatever his wonderful imagination comes up with....

I think it's pretty darn cute...foibles and all.....
I also wanted to post my "craft room" where its all put together...at the moment I have 5 quilts at different stages...two need quilting....
That's my assistant, Molly. She approves most choices of fabric...well...she doesn't disapprove...she sleeps beside me most of the time....
Have a great day!
Nancy
