    A Quilt for my son


    camquilt2 by polkadotzombie, on Flickr


    camquilt4 by polkadotzombie, on Flickr

    It was made from a Folklorico Bundle of fat quarters he picked out. I added some African fabrics I picked up at International Quilt Festival in Houston and a few other assorted fabrics to make it bigger. He likes it very much. There's some backstory on my blog about his history of not being thrilled with the quilts I make him, but I'll let you go there if you are interested since it's kinda long for a pictures thread

    but....just cuz I think he's awesome...here's a pic of the quilt designer himself

    Adorable. I love the toothlessness. I have one that would match him. The quilt is cute, too.

    My two year old differentiates between her older siblings, quite toothless, and herself by saying she has "normal" teeth. It's fine except when she says hello to strangers, squints at their mouth and announces "you have normal teeth" no one is quite sure how to accept that comment....

    It's very cute, and there are those big blue eyes again! lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    He is a very handsome young man and has very good taste in fabrics and quilt design! A very "manly" quilt!

    Your designer is as precious as the quilt! I love the design and colors because they are so cheerful and inviting. Great job Mr. Designer!

    Great fabric choices!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
