Every boy needs a little blankie to carry around. (Just ask my 11-year-old who still sleeps with a square of flannel.)
Since Joe's quilt was a bit large to be dragging everywhere, I made him a little lovey to carry around from the scraps of his quilt.
This baby is about 18" square. Free-motion quilted.
I added loops of ribbon into the binding. I cut the ribbon at 5", folded them over, sewed them to the back of the quilt as I put the binding on the front, and then pulled them out and stitched them down when I sewed the back of the binding on.
