    He has quite an eye for color. I especially love the black and lime green together! Congratulations to both of you for a job well done. I'm sure the teachers will think of a very special student each time they hug their quilts.

    Love the quilts. He did a great job picking the colors and putting them together. How fun that you made them together. Wish I had someone to sew with.

    I like how you incorporated the lime green in with the black and white. Great quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    I am sitting here with tears in my eyes at all the wonderful comments from everyone. Thank you so much for the quilt comments but especially the "handsome" part about my son. He is quite special to me and everyone that knows him, would do anything for anyone. I had bought a sewing table and the lady said the machine was to go with it, so I just kinda put it to the side, I have a Janome. That is what he used and it will be his machine from now on. He even took it to school and showed his classmates how to sew and cut the little pocket tissue holders that someone showed on here. Travis was the only one that would use the sewing machine in class, his teachers said the others were afraid of it. But the teachers had to laugh, he took his shoe off in glass to press on the peddle, like his mom does! LoL
    I really love the black/white/green one too. Loved how the green really is bright against all that black n white.

    Thanks again. Also thanks for the instructions on how to inset a pic. I will give it a try.

    Hugs and happy sewing, Bobbi

    Wow!!

    He did a fantastic job!!!!

    I am working on a Take 5 quilt now. And it has taken me days.......lol....I'm kidding though. If I totaled my hours working on it, it should be close to 5 hours give or take a few minutes.

    Great quilts, and love the color combos in both. I have to go back and figure out that pattern, because it really is striking.

    Maybe the 5 hour quilt is like the 10 minute block.....well for me anyway. What beautiful quilts! Brilliant colour/fabric choices. The photos are gorgeous....what a good-looking, good-hearted son you have. He obviously has a talent for colour and creativity....very special gifts indeed. Look forward to seeing more of his work.
