    Mother & Son Project

    Okay, my grown son wanted a batik quilt so when he was home at Christmas, we spent 4 DAYS! arranging the 9-patch blocks into a kinda Disappearing 9 patch quilt with "his modifications". We had fun and he only changed his mind at least 20 times on the patterns and arrangement. However, he left with the final layout laying on the family room floor. I sewed it all together, put on a wonderful backing and stitched in the ditch on the blocks, hand stitched the binding and here is the results...Happy Birthday son!!!

    You are sure blessed, having time with your son and creating a quilt together. God be willing, I hope I have that opportunity soon. Batiks are all beautiful. Grace
