Matching quilts

Earlier this year, friends of ours had their second baby boy, Ezra. Here is the quilt I made for him:

Ezra's quilt mosaic

And here is the matching cushion I made for his big brother Jacob (so he wouldn't feel left out):

Cushion for Jake

Well it turned out that big brother adores the cot-sized quilt and can often be found snuggled under it on the couch.

It became clear that he needed a quilt of his own. This time, sized for his big boy bed!!

Happy 4th birthday Jacob!! Now you and Ezra can snuggle together!!

Just so you know, if I were sitting on that couch I would probably have been snuggling under the baby's quilt too.


Just sayin' is all ;-)
