To Infinity and Beyond!

In this post about my new sewing table there was a glimpse of some black and white checkerboards that I was preparing for a quilt.
So here they are in a quilt for one of my grandsons. He is obsessed with Toy Story, obviously, and I was able to find assorted Toy Story fabrics on E-bay to put in the quilt and everything else is from my stash. He is in pre-school now and brings a quilt to school for nap so this will be used for that I imagine.
He'll be Woody for Halloween. I made a little Woody vest for him for Halloween but forgot to take a picture but it came out cute. I like putting black and white in quilts. It tones down all the primary colors and makes a simple quilt a little more interesting. I even put black and white in pastel quilts as well. Now I just need to come up with an idea for a quilt for his little brother. The wheels are turning.


  1. What a lucky little boy! That's such a cute quilt!

  2. What cute quilt your grandson will be a hit a preschool!

  3. I have just returned from a day of substitute teaching in a pre-school. Nap time is when one needs something to look at in case you don't feel sleepy. He'll be all set!

  4. it is so cute!
    Your grandson will love it! What a comfort 'quilt' this will be.

  5. What a cute quilt...sure to be a winner with your grandson :o)

  6. Buzz is going to be a star at school for sure!

  7. Oh it's wonderful...what a very lucky boy! My Hampton would flip over that1

  8. What a lovely fun quilt! I rather like Toy Story myself!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
