    Sports Quilts for Young Boys

    I made two of these quilts as gifts for two young boys (5 and 8) using mostly sports-theme prints with some cars and other things thrown in. The pattern is Lucky Stars by Terry Atkinson. I love her patterns....good instructions and easy to follow. The star blocks were a lot of fun to make.

    What a wonderful gift. They have to be awed by this lovely quilt. Amazing (smile). Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Beautiful quilts!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
