Charlie Brown Goes Blue

And here we are with #1’s Blue quilt.  I tried to have the zig-zags say something about each child. Sam is my sushi eater. The two of us always share sushi, hence the middle zig. Then there is an Arabic castle fabric.  Riley has the green medieval castle fabric in his. They both love history […]
