A finish: Tim's quilt - an I Spy variation

Sometimes I just like sewing a good old-fashioned quilt that will be used - hopefully a lot ! This quilt is for little Tim, the son of a friend of mine. I hope the little family will have a lot of fun with it ;-))
The quilt is made from snowball blocks. I used a wide variety of novelty prints and did the corners in yellow and blue. Lucky me, I found just the perfect striped fabric for the borders.
Art Quilts zu nähen, macht mir ja bekanntermaßen einen Riesenspaß. Aber manchmal nähe ich auch gerne einen ganz normalen Quilt. So wie diesen hier - für Tim, den kleinen Sohn einer Freundin. Ich hoffe, die kleine Familie wird eine Menge Spaß damit haben ;-))
Das verwendete Muster ist der Schneeball; ich habe jede Menge Motivstoffe verwendet, die Ecken sind aus gelbem und blauem Stoff. Und dann hatte ich auch noch das Glück, den perfekten gestreiften Stoff für die Randeinfassung zu finden ...

Little Tim likes it very much!!! Every day he plays on it and somtimes his mother tells him funny storries about the pictures on it and then he smiles. One time his mother told him "There is a car on it which makes "brumbrum"." and he looked out of the window where normaly the cars are *laugh*. Result: Mummy likes it, too. And Timi will have fun with the quilt in future for sure. Thank you!!!

That is such a cute and interactive quilt! Well done, the border fabric ties everything together nicely.
