    Just goes to prove that fabric choice is EVERYTHING! You would hardly recognize this as the same quilt that you did for your daughter in law. But I'll bet it's perfect for him, and he'll love his as much as she loves hers!

    I like them both. It's amazing how different colors can give such a different feel to the quilt.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments. My son is really drawn to the brightest colors and he also likes food fabrics. (He worked many years as a cook while he was in college.) He had admired some "chile pepper" fabric I had, but I wasn't able to find more of it. I just did a search for "food fabric" and came up with this. My LQS has a great selection of batiks and, with the exception of the black, the rest of the colors are all batiks. While I was there, she showed me the remainder of the collection that the pepper fabric came from and that was how I chose the back. Sorry I don't know the name of the collection. I named his quilt "Salsa."
