Especially this one with I Love Lucy. Remember the episode where Ethel and Lucy get the job working in the chocolate factory?I've got a couple of other quilts going for the baby but I wanted to get this one in the mail because my son (the soon to be New father) is having a birthday at the end of the week And I wanted to send him a quilt for his baby with one I have made for him.
This is a summer quilt too. I started this quilt for my son when he went off to Africa in the Peace Corps. I told my son I was sending him a quilt he said don't send it 'cause he did not want to worry about taking care of it and getting it back home.
So I put the quilt away and kinda forgot about it until the other day when I was trying to decide what to send him for his B-day. I dug it out and finished it.
It's nothing fancy but I liked the idea of making a Trip Around The World quilt for my kid who had, in fact, taken a trip around the world! All the shirting plaids and chambray came from shirts that had belonged to his paternal Grandfather and the sun and moon fabric was some left-overs from Sam's bedroom curtains. Fabric which he picked out when he was about 10.
I hope the kids enjoy their respective 'blankeys'.
Oh, and another UFO done!
cheers, Claire W.
