Cole's 'Under Construction' Quilt

This summer I found some great little boy fabric in a quilt store (the border fabric below). I was really excited since we were expecting two new little boys in our family this fall! I bought it and then I found the perfect fabric to match at another quilt store (the center of the squares). I worked on this quilt through the fall and gave it to baby Cole for Christmas. You can see how much he loves it in the bottom picture. The part I am proudest of, though, is the fact that I did the machine quilting myself, on my own machine (and no, my Mom was not here to help, I was completely on my own). I just hope it holds together well!
