And this is a shot of the quilt back with a penny for scale. For once I think the back is as pretty or moreso than the front.
I'm sending a copy of Eric Carle's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, along with the quilt. I know Archer and his parents--and his 3 year old sister!--will enjoy it.
Making this quilt was pure joy. As you may know, I've been totally absorbed in political activities here in Wisconsin and I found myself getting extremely exhausted from being outraged at our governor and his shenanigans. Sitting down to work on this quilt took my mind off politics for a few hours at a time and enabled me to relax and enjoy what I was doing for a sweet little boy.
