Craftiness Gone Wild

My Sister Becki had her 2nd little boy Tristan about a month ago. He is so cute and I wanted to make (yes, make) him something. I made her first son a 3 foot cross stitch growing chart. Cross stitching doesn't work with a toddler around so I decided to try my hand in sewing. I DO NOT sew. And to sew something is kinda ambitious since Becki is a MASTER quilter. In fact, sad as it was I had to go to a friends house so she could show me HOW to cut the fabric. Then after resting up for a few days some more friends came to my house with THEIR sewing machines to help me make a quilt. Sewing machines and I don't mix well. They hate me and the feeling is pretty mutual. Anyway, after much aid, frustration, and Ami learning the word "crap" we made a pretty darn cute (if I do say so myself) quilt for Tristan.

Would I do it again? Maybe.

Here is the end result.
