Levi's Quilt

Levi's Quilt is finished. I bought the fabric when we didn't know if he'd be a boy or a girl. There are two different scenes- one fabric is cowboys and the other is cowgirls. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was perfect for Makaya's new baby. I am glad that he turned out to be a boy though, because I think overall, it looks like a boy quilt. The quilt has dark brown dotted chenille as the backing with an organic cotton batting in between. To keep it together, I stitched little brown X's in the corners of the squares.
Here is the complete quilt.

This is a close-up of the name... I tried to make it look like a lasso.
It is handstitched using brown embroidery floss.
