Ben has been asking me to make him a quilt ever since Sam got his last April. Ben specifically wanted a "Hulk" quilt. I could not find Hulk fabric anywhere and I looked everywhere I could.
I wanted to have his quilt ready for his birthday, so I went back to JoAnn's one last time to see what I could find. I found the Hulk on one fabric, so I got it along with other fabrics that I knew he would enjoy and started on his quilt. (See the green Hulk in the picture below?)
It came out cute. Not quite what I envisioned in my head, but I was happy with it.
I found a really cute flannel backing with different cute monsters on it.
It even had Buzz Lightyear!
His reaction to it at his party made the late hours I spent working on it worth it.
I hope he has many years of enjoyment using it. Next project? A cute baby boy quilt and then a Dora/Elmo quilt for Emma. And Ellie hinted that I haven't made her a quilt since she was a newborn. Hmmmm. Maybe for her birthday next year- I don't think I can pull it off in time for this years birthday. Or can I????
