    Have you ever said something and then wished you could take it back? I had just started quilting and had been looking at magazines where I first saw a picture quilt. I told my son I could make a quilt of his Junior Dragster - wrong... he is not one to forget and had hounded me for months... my excuse first I'm gathering the fabrics... then it was I'm still learning how to use my new machine.. well I buckled down and got started in February 2010, my goal was to give it to him at the final race of the season - 4AM the night before we would leave for the track I competed the quilt ... hid it in the motor home when I was packing. He finished 2nd points but this quilt was #1 with him!!

    Mike is very fortunate that his mother's love is so great. He will cherish that and have his photo taken by it many times in his life. It will be there long after you have gone, warming him with your love. Way to go!

    Welcome to the board from Iowa. You are an amazing mom! He won first place in his heart that is for sure and you gave him the best prize ever! This is a wonderful quilt and a very treasured memory for that young man.

    Awesome job! Had to show it to my DH - he is a drag racer himself (71 Nova)! Very seldom can I get him interested in a quilt but he really loves yours! (Bet I get a request from him soon! - Already have one for his motorcycle!)
