Celebrating a new Grandson

In May, we officially welcomed a new grandson into the family.  He's been with our daughter's family as a foster child for three years and was formally adopted a few months ago.  He is 7 1/2 years old.  It was his turn for a quilt for his bed and he chose foxes :-).  We adapted Sew Fresh quilts fox baby quilt pattern and enlarged it to fit Benny's bed.  He was thrilled to get a new little stuffed fox to go with the quilt as well!

Here are the rows lined up on the design wall....it took a little math to get all the pieces to come out the same length 🙂

Orange binding worked well to frame the quilt. 

It was quilted with a lovely cabin in the pines motif by Chris Bogart

The colours were chosen from this wonderful fox print for the back
