I have to admit that when we began last weekend, I was sure this was going to end up as a WIP. He surprised me though. He was determined to finish it.
For the quilting, I had pulled out some variegated yellow thread that I thought would match his quilt (and that I hoped we could use up!), but he wasn't having any of it. He pointed to a spool of yellow polyester Aurifil thread (#5222) and said "that one looks like gold." Okay, Rumpelstiltskin. Even my kid prefers Aurifil. LOL!
He is so excited about his quilt!
|Look at that grin! There's son #3 doing his best to photobomb.|
He especially loves this bulldog square for some reason:
I am less enamoured with the bulldog.
Trying to get clear photos of this quilt was a challenge. We tried this:
|Playing I Spy|
|Daniel's March Break Madness - Front|
|Daniel's March Break Madness - Back|
His finished quilt measures 44" by 50".
It was so much fun seeing the quilting process through his eyes. I'm so proud of him. :) He's already picked out the colours he wants for his next project. A placemat. Phew!
I'm now contemplating Purl Buttons advice to Hide.My.Stash! :)
