"A Boy's Story" Quilt Is Finished (lots of photos)

It really is finished, binding and all. I love this quilt, I love this whole pattern. I have a little boy so I related to the pattern the moment I first saw it. I love to embroider and it has the cutest embroidery pictures all over it. The pattern came from Hatched and Patched and is called " A Boy's Story".

I am going to show you LOTS of pictures up close so you can see how sweet this pattern is and why I had to make this quilt.

If you look really close under the boat you can see I've added a shark (not in the pattern). My son is the biggest shark crazy kid I know. So we had to have a shark in the water. Look at the embroidery of the little brother getting ready to turn his sister into a toad.

My son lives on his bike. And has a wonder dog side-kick named "Basil".

I also had to add an alligator to the moat ( not in the pattern).

My son also wants to be Jeremy Wade from River Monsters when he grows up so this fishing embroidery is perfect!

I love that this little boy has taken his dog surfing.

I am so happy with the way it turned out. Thank you for stopping by to look.

If I had a boy littler then mine are, I would be sooo tempted by this pattern... I can see why you just had to do it.
The quilt you made and especially the personal touches are great!
