Hampton's New Quilt

I finally finished Hampton's new Snowman quilt...I posted this before, it was folded up and he was on it, but I must confess the binding wasn't done. I finished the binding so I was time to show the whole thing. I really like it a lot, but it sure was a stretch for me. I just don't do bright quilts, but for him I'd do most anything. So here it is...
I decided when the kids left here last week that I would not let more than 6 or 8 weeks go by without seeing Hampton...so as luck would have it Southwest is having a huge sale and I got a ticket...I'm going up on May 19th for 5 days...I can't wait!!! Less than 6 weeks...YIPPEE!
Off to the shower and get this day running. Have a wonderful day.

You've got a smart idea to not let too much time pass - those little ones grow so darned quickly and you need all the hugs and kisses you can get *s* The quilt looks great - he'll stay snuggly warm.

Wow, what a great quilt! Perfect for an inquisitive mind--lots of bright colors to look at. And it's wonderful you could get a good airfare to see Hampton again.

Hampton is quite the little doll baby and this is the prefect quilt from grandmommy. Good job, Carol!

That is just the cutest little quilt. I love SWA. If I *have* to fly, I try to use them. Unfortunately, they don't go to the Dakotas, where we spend summers. =( I just won't fly United. I'm investigating taking the train instead. =)
