    Kevin's Quilt

    This is the quilt that I made for my son, for his dorm room at university, using the school's colours. This is the first time that I have made a matching pillowcase, but it was dead easy! The last picture here is of my son and his roommate, with the quilt on his bed in residence. Thank you for looking.

    Love it! They way you used the print on white fabrics for the background and darker fabrics for the stars is just amazing. what is the name of the pattern?
