First thank you to everyone who has help me with this quilt. Thanks for posting pictures of your quilts for inspiration. And for tutorials teaching me how to FMQ, bind, miter corners, paper piece and correct things when needed. My first attempts at these things. finally finished this quilt for my grandson's 27th birthday - one week late. He graduated from Cordon bleu School as a chef in 2009. I used his graduation book cover and a picture taken of Jason and I at his school open house. The checked material around these two sections is from shortening his pants. The chef material is from people here. He is working at Bonefish Grill so the lobsters on the back. Thank you again.

The bones and paw prints are in honor of his new puppy, Lola.
