    My son will be 30 years old on the 16th. I actually have this finished in time. Unbelievable on my part !!! He saw the batiks and loved them but could not imagine them all together. Can't wait to see what he thinks. Since he wanted it to be big ( he loves to lay on the couch all curled up) and warm, I had it quilted with a leaf pattern that was rather large so it was cuddly and used washable wool batting. Should be all he hoped for. When I started this quilt he was a lonely bachelor. Now he has a beautiful, fantastic girlfriend. Hope she loves as much as he does. (I know he will be proposing soon)
    Thanks so much for looking

    Love the quilt for your son. I have 2 sons and 1 daughter turning 30 years old in January (yep, triplets). They are not as lucky as your son. No quilts for them ----yet. I'm having a hard time believing they are that old. Where did 30 years go????????

    That is just gorgeous!! Your son will love it, just hope the new girl does. I had made several quilted, country style things for my son when he was single, he really like them.Then he married a interior decorator and she threw it all out! I actually got them from the trash box !! His most treasured item, his grandma's music box( a very simple one, not a beautiful one) that was never seen again.

    I think this quilt might well be the prettiest batik quilt I have ever seen. I am not super crazy about batiks in a quilt. I see pretty batik fabrics but just don't want to put them in a quilt. But I sure do like yours and I am willing to bed your son and his GF will like it too.

    What a beautiful quilt. Great ideas for the batting and quilting to make it soft and warm.
