Yep, you heard right. Turle. Tigress. I can't understand 3 year olds.
I finished THE quilt. THE quilt that was originally my Not Really Irish St Patty's quilt. THE quilt that then became Jeremiah's Green Quilt with pirate backing. I told him to think of a name for his quilt, so I could put it on the label. He thought long and hard all afternoon and came up with "Turtle-Tigress." He is on a Kung-Fu Panda kick and loves Tigress, but he says since Tigers are orange and his quilt is green we're just gonna pretend.
Here is Jeremiah's finished green, Turle Tigress sans label. I didn't get the label done or it washed but he is happy, happy!
I said, "Jeremiah I'm so happy to have made you a quilt."
To which he replies, "Mama, I made the quilt. Well, I did some of it. I did all the blocks in the middle. You did the binding." Glad we have that straight.
I have no idea what size it is. It was 40 3/4" wide before I quilted it, LOL! Remember the problem I had with the sashes? All I know is that it quilted with only 2 little bitty puckers and that it has binding on it. Good enough for me. The binding is even different across the bottom because I was stash-busting bits of binding. I think it's really cute and I'm glad he loves it! I am glad because of the odd size that he changed his mind about the flying geese border and wanted a checkerboard instead. I still have a bunch of the squares for the checkerboard and 1/2 yd of the pirate flannel so I am thinking a throw pillow to match?
