    My son's wife decided she did not want to be a mommy/wife anymore and walked out to start a new carefree life. The quilt I had made for them, was actually made more for her, so we let her take the quilt. So my son needed a new one, his favorite colors were red, blue and orange. Well orange just did not go with the red and blue. So I did the next best thing... 4th of July quilt because he has always wanted to be a Pyrotechnician..and loves this time of the year. The fabrics used have stars and fireworks designs. He loves how this looks.. I do also..

    It sure is!!! Guess it's his Independence Day quilt, in more ways than one, too. God bless him in his new life.

    My daughter's husband decided the same thing and the quilt for their bed was in colors that he wanted. I am quilting her a hot pink rail fence with the main fabric having flip flops on it, foot wear that she uses ALL the time!

    He will love his quilt. It will comfort him at a time like this. Sorry the marriage did not work.
