    This is a quilt I finished recently. I can't take any credit for design, color as it was a kit I purchased at a quilt show. the combination of minky and batik gave my machine fits, but it turned out quite lovely after all was said and done.

    I love that quit, esqmommy, especially the colors. And I know what you mean about backing it with a minke or other fluffy fabric. I just made one for my best friend and had fits with binding it! Fortunately she isn't a seamstress or quilter and won't notice the mistakes! LOL.

    the number of mistakes are uncountable...the number of starts/stops with the quilting too. After about half of it, the thread began to break. I must have tried a million things to try and make it work. It was very frustrating, but she'll never really see the difference.

    Thanks for all the kind words. yes, I agree, my little guy is cute! He's a pistol, but a total cuddle bunny. and the boy loves his mommy!!

    Love the colours - I've just bought some fats in those colours to make my Mother a wheelchair quilt.

    I love the fabrics--the colors are a great combo. Even if you "just bought a kit", you made a lovely selection. Will's teacher looks thrilled with her gift. You did good.

    What fun! Those pictures are priceless! William looks like a handful, and they DO look like they enjoy each other!
    Praying that all his teachers are as much fun for all of you! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Your little boy is just so cute!!!

    And I love the quilt -- and I bet the teacher couldn't wait to show it off in the break room. Guess you know that now ALL his teachers will expect a quilt at the end of the year :roll: :roll:

    Wonderful quilt. As a retired teacher, I can say thank you for all your hard work making the quilt, thank you for sharing your son with the teacher, and thank you to the teacher for her hard work and interest in the students. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
