Here is a quilt that I have done before but smaller.

My husband and I keep our little grandson often. 

He has outgrown his little play pen.

So we purchased him a little bed.

With a new bed comes a new quilt.

I wanted the quilt big enough to go over the sides but I forgot about the rails on the side.

I love this little design, it makes up really fast.

I used my Accuquilt go Train die.

I wish I had the Accuquilt Go alphabet die, maybe one day.

Now to make a pillowcase that matches it.

So fun seeing all of this come together.

Perfect, don't you just love having grandchildren over? It's my fav. How old is he? My littlest one will be 2 in Dec and the oldest is 26 and given me two great grands! Good to hear from you.

Adorable little quilt. It might not drape over the bed like you envisioned but it won't effect how cuddly it is for a cute little boy.

I'm off to check out the hop...
