    My son Cole picked out this pattern and all of the fabric. He requested a quilt for his birthday and I finished it last night in about three hours....maybe less. Hsi birthday was July 30th...but his party is August 21st...so I have plenty of time to quilt and bind it. I think it turned out well and he is going to LOVE it!

    I really like it and he did a great job picking out the fabric, you should hire him! The flames especially are really a cool accent.

    I should borrow Cole for some of my projects. Good color and pattern choice. I'm sure he will love how it turned out.

    Very nice colors. They work well together. Is the white a fairy frost? I think what I find amazing is that your son was interested in picking out both the pattern and the fabrics.
    I've made quilts for all three of my grown sons and although they loved the finished quilt, they weren't interested in picking out any of it. Good for him and for you.

    You AMAZE me with how quickly you turn out quilts!


    I saw your pics of your "squares in squares 2" and that inspired me to try that pattern. It went together fairly easy. I'm slowly getting it quilted, but haven't had the nerve to FMQ yet, only SID.

    I've been lurking on this forum for several months now, and even ventured to help my DD (she's 23) make a small lap quilt a couple of months ago, other than that I've not worked on a quilt in over 20yrs. But I have certainly been bitten by the bug again, and don't see any end in sight. =)
    Thanks for sharing your pictures!

    Your son did a great job. I am glad he hasn't been bitten by the "it's a girls thing" bug!
