Henrik's First Birthday Quilt

I really wanted to make a quilt for Henrik's first birthday since I didn't make him a true quilt for when he was born.  We threw him a red, white and blue vintage-style train party for his first birthday so I wanted the quilt to go with the party.  I saw a pennant quilt on EmmyLizzy's Blog and thought that would work well for incorporating all of the fabric without it looking too dense or busy.  So played around with the layout for a while:
Then sewed them down for the top:

I didn't take any more process pictures because I pulled a couple VERRRRRRYYYY late nights in order to get it finished before his 1-year pictures.

Karianna Photography did an INCREDIBLE job capturing the details of his quilt.
As a backdrop for his cake smash


And she captured the back side where I embroidered a note to him!
