I realized the other day that I have yet to show off my son's quilt that I started forever ago. This was my largest quilt to date and I'm so happy with it! I picked the design and the fabrics, but I let him give me the color scheme. He wanted orange, green, and blue. I have to say he picked just right, too!
I used a log cabin variation with just a few stripped blocks to break it up a bit.
I discovered that my machine will not handle a full size quilt, it can barely handle a twin. Bummer! So I had to pull out my grandmother's quilting hoop and get to work. This time I used embroidery thread for the quilting for the first time. I love the detail of it and it went SO much faster than using traditional hand quilting thread.
The ever time consuming hand quilting.
The back pieced with two fabrics.
A little label I printed out and attached to the back. It makes me happy to know he has this little letter from me to him telling him how much I love him. Always.

Folded up at the end of the bed in his orange room.
This is a sneak peek at the quilt I'm making for my little girl. It's coming together beautifully and it's so her! I just love it!
