Look what I made!

I made this quilt for my son T.R. at his request.

(Don't know why that first picture came out sideways, but oh well.)

Before he was born, I made him one I saw in a book with a similar theme, but the text was from nursery rhymes and the quilt was crib-sized. Now that he's big, he wanted one for his bed. We chose the quotes from some of our favorite books (and one favorite item from the bulletin board). I embroidered the panels using waste canvas, then pieced the quilt. I hand-quilted it and voila. He hasn't seen the finished product yet, but I think he will be happy.
