    i wanted to give my son something memorable for his 16th birthday that didn't have a set of keys, electrical gadgets, or be a pricey bribe....so i made him a quilt in his favorite colors:
    BLACK - WHITE - LIME GREEN

    special thx to my quilting angel, who i still blame for my newest addiction to quilting BC!

    Love the colors! I think he is one lucky 16 year old! My Youngest DD (27) would love it to pieces....she loves green!

    Oh, just wondering....would you mind sharing the name of the pattern you used?

    Very pretty, I'm sure he will love it, I can bet at 16 he would love some car keys and a car to go with them. Just a lucky bet on part.

    That is great. It's nice to give a gift that is something they will be able to keep forever. It's more meaningful when you make something. Wonderful job.

    Beautiful quilt.
    Wow, you are one of the families who still play board games. Last night I played cards and scrabble with my 18 year old son. We both had fun.

    Excellent work! Your son will love it. I made my teenage son a quilt 10 years ago and he won't sleep under anything else. By the way, welcome to the board!
