    my son's quilt is quilted

    He is getting this for part of his Christmas. He has helped at every step of the way. He picked all the fabrics out, he picked what kind of batting he wanted, and the backing fabric. He is very excited to have a new quilt and he says he is going to take it everywhere he goes(hopefully he doesn't...lol).
    The batting is high loft poly batting. It was freehand quilted on a longarm. The quilt top is very different than what I had originally planned it to be, but he likes it and that's what matters.
    Thanks for looking

    Very cute. I hope he has many, many years to enjoy it. Just think of the memories you have created for him... something to tell his kids and grandkids.

    What a sweetie! You can see the joy and pride all over his face, what a wonderful age to be and be thankful for the simple pleasures in life and so appreciative of being part of the process. He will remember always the time and love you poured into his quilt and how he got to be so much a part of it! Kitty seems to think there is something there for him/her too!

    oh yes...he loves being able to help me with my projects. He even wants to learn how to crochet, so I'm teaching him how to do chains. The cats think everything is for them. If it makes it in the house...they are on it!!!! Lol, gotta keep it in the sewingroom to hide it from the cats.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    What a great quilt for a little boy - lots of interesting fabrics, new color combinations and a perfect central block. Love it!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Don't know what you planned but it sure came out fantastic! Your son did a great job on choosing the fabrics.

    Looks like he loves it! I love your calico kitty, too! I have a special place in my heart for calicos.

    Great quilt and it is so nice when the recipient helps with the fabric and backing choices, it makes it so much easier for the quilter
