    this is a Rocket Quilt, designed by my 6 years old nephew in Poland.
    When he asked me to make a quilt with a rocket theme I could not find anything that I liked on the web and when I told him that, he decided to design it himself.
    Thanks to the wonderful Quilting Shop in my town and the beautiful fabrics that they had I was able to make the quilt very close to what he asked for.
    He loves it!

    You did an awesome job of bringing his drawing to life. I can see the big grin on his face now. He'll tell the story of his quilt to everyone that sees it for years to come.

    I think you need get that drawing onto fabric and incorporate it as a label on the back of the quilt! It is awesome and it would be great to have it with the quilt forever.
