Look who is two
Oscar turned two this month. With his new haircut he looks so grownup. He is all about transportation vehicles so I made him a new white shirt to wear with the romper his uncles and dad used to wear. Hard to see, but there is picture smocking on the front with a bus, truck, and a couple more vehicles.
I also made him an I Spy quilt.
Once again I used a striped border and found myself mitering corners. I used a coordinating dot fabric for the triangles.
Because of his current loves, the backing is also about transportation.
I couldn't resist adding a pillow. This "tractor" as Oscar calls it, was made using the Buggy Barn pattern book, Those Crazy Kids.
Here is the back of the pillow. I picked up this cute fat quarter on sale last fall because it was so charming. Once I was on to this project I had to use it. I knew that Oscar would stare at it picking out all the tiny vehicles. It wasn't quite big enough, so once again there was a border.
Doesn't it just make you want to visit this hilly place? I did just visit a hilly place, but more about that later.
