Josh's First Communion

We went to Josh's First Communion last weekend. It was nice to see him all dressed up on his special day. I'm so happy that he is part of our family. I wish I would have gotten a picture of Josh with his parents, but there was so much going on and then I forgot.
I know a First Communion is a pretty big deal, so I wanted to give him something bigger as a present. Something more lasting than say a toy or something. At Kelli's request, we bought him a Children's Bible and wrote our testimonies inside. I still felt like I wanted to give him more. I decided on a quilt.

I did some looking on Pinterest and found some plus quilts that I really liked. I figured it was the closest thing to a cross that I was going to get! I didn't want it to look too "communion" ish either. So now Josh can curl up under his quilt with THE Good Book.

I used In Color Order's tutorial for the Plus Quilt. I decided to make mine out of all solids and really love the way it turned out. It's backed in navy/cream polka dots and bound in a natural/navy stripe. I'm loving the striped binding lately! Sorry I don't have a detail pic. Maybe next time I'm at Josh's house. For the quilting I just did straight lines on either side of each seam. I love how it reinforces the plus signs.

And another picture of Josh on his big day...
