Nap Time Blanket and Pillow For Kindergarten

Here is another' long ago creations' that I made for my little boy when he started kindergarten. He is now in the Air Force and is greatly missed at home. This is a little blanket made from all cotton fabric with a race car print mixed with solids red and blue. I made a matching little pillow from the race car cotton. When I made this for my son, I had hoped he would remember that mommy made it for him and that I was kind of there with him during nap time. He always loved taking this to school and then it became his travel blanket over the years till one day I caught him wrapping it around his regular pillow on his bed  when he was just 13. That's my boy!!! haha It's now put away in a safe place so that one day when he is ready for it again, I can give it back to him good as new. Enjoy the project but enjoy who you're making it for more!

Nathan's Toddler Bed Sailboat Quilt

This little quilt was made for my son years ago when he moved into his toddler bed. I used a nautical themed cotton fabric and 12" square sailboat blocks. There is a rope trim around the edges. I had also made window valances that matched the nautical fabric, but do not have a photo of the room. The quilt block pattern is from a Georgia Bonesteel quilting book from the 1980's. All cotton quilting fabric was used with cotton quilt batting.
