    Christmas present!

    Nope, not for Christmas, 2013, but for last Christmas. I cut out and pieced this 196-piece quilt for my son a week before Christmas. I'm one of those people who get that Christmas adrenaline rush and I have to add one more thing to do. I laid 1/2 of it out so he could visualize the finished product. It is not batik, like the Underground Studios pattern called for because I didn't know how upkeep would be in a coin laundry. (Note the tag. He probably won't do that, and he really doesn't have to, as warm water and a dryer won't kill the quilt, but I'm just trying to give it a fighting chance). The name of the quilt was Crossroads, but I changed it to Sky King, as he loves aviation. I guess this is Sky King flying at night :-). He also received a DVD of the old Sky King series to watch while the quilt got done. He's too young (28) to know who Sky King was, but he thought the DVD was a hoot. I finished it on January 18, and held to show to my guild for points on February 27. So quess what? We had a blizzard and the meeting was canceled. I can't hold the quilt for next month, as I'm delivering it to him tomorrow. And so it goes.

    What a great quilt. I could sit and stare at it for a long time daydreaming. LOL... The lines almost look like the prop in different directions cutting though the midnight sky. How fun.

    Oh cool, I just saw the planes quilted onto the quilt and realized it also looks somewhat like the fields you see below while you are flying low.

    Hadn't thought of Sky King in years. Used to love the show. Your blues are so pretty.
