Hourglass Snuggle Quilt Finish

If you give a moose a muffin...
If you make one boy a quilt, then you must make one for the others.

After finishing the first snuggle quilt for my middle man, the endless questions about "When are you going to finish MINE?" started.  
How many kids do I have?  Oh, yes.  That's right.  3.  I guess I'm not done then yet!  Here is snuggle quilt 2 of 3.  This one for my oldest's belated (yes, I missed the deadline again) birthday (8).  Simple hourglass blocks in what I hope are boy-ish enough colors for an 8 year old.
I can see that making quilts for my mini men is only going to get harder and harder.
But as long as they keep asking..... of course, I will oblige.

  1. I made quilts for my kids a million years ago. There were no LQS at the time. I was self taught. The quilts were horrible and ugly. My son used his to death. So one day I picked it up to get rid of it. My son asked what I was doing. I told him in the quilt world this was a rag. With tears in his eyes my 20-something son said "You're not throwing out MY QUILT are you ?!?!?!" UH, no of course not. So I took it to a retreat and another quilter looked at it, and maybe it wasn't sooo bad. It was a roman stripe and I was able to split the blocks and just get rid of a few really worn parts, re-piece it and now it is a wall hanging which I re-gifted on his birthday. So even if you make a million quilts, these little boy quilts are going to be around a very LONG time.
