Whirly-pop Quilt

Yep….I chopped off the border. Lucky for me most of you agreed that the border should go, since I had already chopped it off before I posted the top. :) Its a better wall hanging size without the border, except after seeing these pictures I think I need to iron it out before I really put it on the wall with more than double stick tape.
I turned Ben’s quilt over yesterday and I don’t think I ever showed you a picture of the back…so here it is (during nap time…. hallelujah). I love the back almost as much as the front, the stripes are just a sheet I bought from The Company Store. Its nice and soft and 3 year old proof. Is that even possible?

    Love the whirly pop quilt! Your son's quilt is awesome on the back. I like the stuffie in his bed too.

    Your choice of fabric and color is so uplifting! Thank you for motivating me to make time to sew, amidst being Mom to 5 kids, again…

    It looks much better without the border – I love it! And the back of the other quilt is lovely too, I like pieced backs, I can never be bothered but I think I might start!

    I LOVE it! How is it that you have so much wee play…I have 2 charm packs and I am guarding them with my life because I can't find it anywhere.

    Love that bottom photo. Just adorable. The universe makes sleeping babes so damn cute because otherwise we wouldn't be able to quell the desire to kill them in their sleep after a trying day. Okay, that's a bit strong, but I bet all moms know what I mean.

    Wow, I really like a lot of your stuff…love that wall hanging and love the back of your son's quilt.

    You are so talented and your children are lucky to have you as their Mom.
    Love the bed sheet quilt and the wallhaning looks much better this way.

    I love the back – it's gorgeous! It looks so streamlined and boyish, especially with the sleeping gentleman under it. That sheet was a find!
