Here are some pictures of the play mat quilt that I recently made for my darling grandson Thomas (TJ). I neeed to make another now for a friends baby and just wish that I had written down everything as I made it because I didn not use a pattern. Lesson learnt next time I make something out of my head I will do up a pattern first. I used colouring in books to trace the pattern pieces and typed the letters up on the computer and blew up for the applique.
Thomas loves to sit on it and traces around the letters with his fingers feeling the applique. He has a goldfish called "Reno" so that is his favourite animal on the quilt. The outside border and backing is made from Hey Diddle Diddle fabric.
This is TJ (Thomas Junior) who is my first grandchild. My daughter Sammy is expecting a sister for him in April. I can finally get to make some pink things. He is helping to collect the eggs from our recently acquired hens which are pictured below. He loves getting "up the back" when he visits grandama and goes straight to the hens to say hello.
