A quilt finish

I've finished little Alex's "big boy" quilt. Since he will no longer stay in his crib, Alex has moved to a big bed. I pieced this quilt using the new "Take 5" quilt pattern from The Teacher's Pet and fabric from Salina Yoon Kids! line of whimsical farm animals.

The quilt went together quickly and the directions were easy to follow. After I had the quilt top pieced, I quilted it with a tractor motif. I hope my little farming Grandson will love his new quilt. I used some of the left over fabric for a matching pilowcase. And, knowing Alex - the pillowcase will probably have more interesting things in it than a pillow, so all of the seams were reinforced.
