    wolf quilt for Grandson

    Hi Everyone. If you recall..last month I posted a quilt made for one twin Grandson. Got it from Missouri Star Quilt video. It was called 'Illusion'. I finished this 'top' only for the other guy. He is 19 ...and has always had a love of wolves. When little, he had light switch covers, curtains, border panels, sheets, pillows..all wolves. He has outgrown the bed in that room now...lol...so he sleeps in the well finished basement with the fireplace. I found all of this fabric at a yard sale in 2014. Finally found a use for it.

I asked him what his favorite color was and without hesitation he blurted out "lime green" (I can't believe he is related to me. ) I asked you guys last month to help me figure out how many strips I could get from a 36" x 18" piece. And you guys came through. So here is the rest. Name:  wolf quilt Dec. 2015 006.jpg

    I'm sure he will love it. Thinking at being almost 20 you should feel safe knowing he won't chew on the beads, lol

    What a work of art. I used to be a bead artisan and I still love beads, but to put them on a quilt, is amazing.

    Yeah...my thoughts exactly!!! Couldn't believe I actually had some. And then later ran across the lime green camo. What a great kid, He isn't aware of this, yet. I can't wait to see his reaction. Lime green and all.
