Turning Twenty Again...Finished

Remember last November when I showed you this quilt top that I was making Ashton for Christmas?  I said I was going to send it off to a quilter to quilt if for me, but then I never did.  I finally did it myself.  Just in time for his 6th birthday.  In July.  Ahem.
I used blue painters tape to quilt straight lines.  Well. sort of straight.  They  measure about an inch apart.
The back:
You know when you make a quilt and finally get it on the bed then you want to change everything else in the room.  Of course.  So I'll be working on that.  Some new (or thrifted curtains) are in order.
Ashton and Jax are sharing a room, so we've got a crib in here too.  Soon it will be time for a big boy bed.  Maybe a bunk bed?  Now that would mean another quilt.

It's a vicious cycle...but I love it.
