    Son's birthday quilt

    This is a quilt I was working on and did not finish in time for my son's birthday. Anyway, I chose these fabrics because he collects playing cards.

    I like it! I'm sure he will, too, since it reflects his collection!

    I love it. What perfect colors for a "guys" quilt. Great choice of fabric too. Thanks for sharing.

    It's a great quilt! How fun to find that fabric. I've never seen it before. And the alternate fabric is a wonderful choice.

    Perfect fabric. Haven't seen it before. I bet he will like his new addition to his 'card' collection.
    Live and let live!

    Love it, it looks like the blocks with the cards are jumping right off the quilt.

    Thanks for letting us know where you got fabric - love it!!!

    I am sure your son didnt mind it was late for his birthday - he will have a long time to enjoy it once finished. You have done a great job with the pattern and colors. How special it is since you took into consideration his love for cards-GREAT JOB!!!
