A Quilt For Jaxon

 My sweet grandson Jaxon turned two years old earlier this month.

Hubby and I flew to Houston so we could be there for the big event.

We gave him several new outfits for his birthday and one incredibly special quilt from Grammie!

The quilt block I used is the Wonky Star Block.  Each star block finished at 14 inches. I used scraps from a Dr. Seuss, bundle I had on hand.

Jaxon's room is gray with a blue accent, which is why I chose a blue faded denim cotton as the background fabric. I used Minky fabric as the backing, which also had a faded denim look.
They live in Texas and the minky is heavy, so I used flannel for the batting.

I love making wonky stars! I find them much easier to make than traditional stars. With the wonky star quilt block exact measurements aren't required, making it easy to "float" the star legs and not having to stress over losing your points!

Jaxon's quilt measures 48 x 78 inches and I love love the scrappy binding!

I'm ashamed to admit that I don't label my finished quilts, but I did make one for my sweet Jaxon's quilt.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving - eating tasty food, good drinks, watching football and especially being in the presence of those who make you feel special and loved 💕

Until next time.... happy crafting!

  1. Hi Karla! TWO?!! How does that happen? One minute, we're thrilled to pieces to announce their arrival . . . and then, wham. Two. Two is COOL. The celebration looks fab - I'm thrilled you could make it (wild horses couldn't have kept you away). Love the special Grammie quilt. Reach for the stars, Jaxon - you can grab one for sure. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
