    FINALLY I got the photos ready to post. Trevor is the ultimate Van Halen fan. And I added that to his quilt label. Here are some photos of him and his special quilt. He had no idea I was making this for him. This quilt has now become a shrine on the bed. and is not to be slept on our sat on right now (hee hee it will pass I'm sure).

    I had a birthday party at the house for him Friday night and he took everyone into the bedroom to show off the quilt.. hmm me thinks he likes it!

    The quilt!! Crazy patch quilt with iron on transfers in the centre of each block.
