On a visit to family in Ohio this summer, I was able to see the baby quilts I had made for my niece and nephew, who are now 24 and 21. See if you can match 2 of them to the originals on previous postings. As you can see here, they have been much loved and used. I loved seeing that.
The other quilt pictured here was made to celebrate the birth of their brother, Tony Massucci, who is now 11. This quilt was a kaleidoscope pattern made from scraps. I was going for color that would work through his youth, not soft baby colors. The vechile pattern backing is definitely for a boy. This quilt has also seen much use, but the wear is not as bad, as the user is younger.
