    Son's Christmas quilt

    This is a quilt I made for my son for Christmas and the label made by sewnsewer on this board. I am so pleased with how it all turned out for him. He wanted a "dark" quilt and he loves grey so I chose grey and white and tone-on-tone grey's mixed with patches of vibrant colors. He was very happy with the finished quilt. Our son is very much into bicycling so when my husband found the Hindu patch we knew we had to add it to his quilt. The quilt is queen sized and was quilted by my good friend Nancy. Thanks for looking.

    I love the "hodge podge" of quilting motifs! Perfect! Lovely quilt and cool label!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Great quilt! The quilting looks Leah Day-ish. The designs look like what she showed on her batik beauty quilt this year. I have been practicing a few of her designs.

    This is awesome. Love the Ganesha patch. The colors are so cool and the quilting is fab' with the top. If the dog loves it, it passes the test!

    Oh my gosh! I could never make that quilt; I can't sew a straight line.
    But you really did a great job. Love the colors.

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. The dog looks like he knows he shouldn't be on the new quilt.
