The geese have finally landed!

This week, it's been all about DS #2, or "P." P has been patiently waiting for his quilt and also, for the quillow below. Since he's at his father's house this week, I have to wait until Sat. for his reaction but I couldn't wait to post photos for you. I hope you like. :D

The quillow was simple, I opened a fleece sleeping pouch I made for him when he was a younger lad (and not 5'3", 114 lbs.) but has out grown. Since he wanted a blanket/pillow for his boyscout campouts, this was a no brainer. We added the pocket and here you have it.

Now, the geese, they've landed. In otherwords, the quilt is complete, finished, done! I was lucky that I had a pre-folded bias binding tape in the right size and color red so I didn't have to do any additional sewing. It was a nice way to end with this problem-attracting quilt.

The whole thing (please ignore the pre-teen room, it's about as neat as I can get him to keep it!)

Wow - the color combo is incredible! What an accoplishment: A quilt that is manly but not brown. :-)

Great job!!
