Festival Quilt

I'm joining Amy and all the other bloggers for the Blogger's Quilt Festival and this is my entry. It is an oldie, but a goodie and it has been shown before on my blog ..... but that was a long time ago. It was made for a grand-nephew a few years ago.
This week, I received this sweet drawing of himself under his quilt. Now you know why this quilt was my entry for the festival. You just can't get any better than this. Have a great day!
