I made this quilt for my brand new nephew, Sully.  The photo is terrible, but you get the gist:



It was my first time doing applique, and my first time doing circles, and boy, was there a steep learning curve!  If I did this again I feel like it would be much more successful, but that's always the way.  He's only going to barf all over it, anyway.  I also ONCE AGAIN have learned the hard way that if you want something to look random, you have to PLAN it.  Jeez.

The plaid fabric is culled from a shirt my brother (Sully's dad) used to own, which I thought would be a nice, personal touch.

And here I am with the recipient, less than an hour old!

Fantastic quilt - I am learning about sewing circles, too ... you're way ahead of me, though!

And your nephew is adorable!  Congrats!

Congratulations on being a new aunt!

That is a lovely quilt.  And pretty special to have pieces of Dads shirt in it.  Great Job

What a fun pattern! I like the circles and nice touch to recycle fabric for it.
