Xavier’s Quilt Top Finished

I have finally finished the borders on the quilt for my nephew who turns three in a couple of weeks. He has been watching me make it, and had helped me pick the fabrics – notice there are a lot of star fabrics which seemed to be his preference.

I asked him if he wanted stars quilted on it and he said yes. I also asked him if he wanted red or blue thread. He had a very strong preference for blue.

I will show pictures of it quilted soon.


  1. Your making great memories with your nephew, whenever he looks at his quilt he will think of the time he spent with you. Look forward to seeing it quilted.

  2. Perfect for a little boy. Your nephew will treasure it always, especially since he "helped" you with it. Can't wait to see it quilted!

  3. Lovely Desley - he will be so happy with that :)

  4. Anxiously waiting to see it all fancied up with quilting.

  5. Xavier will love it. I can evisage him counting the big square and the little once and then the blue and the red, the dotted once and so on. A good excercise before he will go to sleep.
