    This was my first quilt, In the top left is a logo from his XXL and next to it is from his newborn jammies ( bears w/balloons). A challenge. Sent this to him 1500 miles away & he called to open the package with me. There was a gasp, then my macho bachelor 25 yr old son started crying. He liked it and I fell in love with quilting.

    Sorry, but I just can't get the picture to come through. Will try again some other time.

    Oh, that brought tears to my eyes, hearing how much he loved his beautiful quilt. And having a Mom that quilts, I am sure he has more than an inkling how very time consuming and labor intensive it was to make. Each time he wraps it around him, he will feel your arms hugging him! Beautiful, thanks for sharing.

    Remember you can't preview when you add a picture. Just browse & add and then send. I had to try several times until I learned, too.

    I too would love the "how to" . My middle step-son just asked me if I could turn his "international T shirt" collection into a quilt. Yours looks fantastic.
