    A simple quilt for my son

    My son wanted me to make him a quilt with fabrics he selected. He wanted it to be about him and things he likes. We collected the fabrics over several months and he was involved in creating the pattern. The only missing piece was something Canadian, really hard to get in Long Island, NY. A wonderful QB member sent us a piece of Canadiana fabric - thank you! It is a very simple quilt that we came up with, but he loves it and that is all that matters.

    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise
