Thank you friends.
It was so nice of you to stop by
and leave such SWEET comments
and encouragement yesterday!!!
Blogland is a very nice place to be.
This is where I decided to go with my son's quilt.
I cut the 1/2 yard pieces of the dreaded sports fabric
into 18"x18" squares.
I'm surrounding them with my free style log cabin blocks
that I had already pieced into columns.
Only two more sides to GO!!!
Great! that is perfect for your son!ReplyDelete
a great compromise!ReplyDelete
It looks wonderful. When it is finished you will smile a big smile, 'cause he will be smiling an even bigger one.ReplyDelete
He will love it and that is what matters the most! Good for you!!!!ReplyDelete
He will love it. Bet he wears it out. You did good, dear.ReplyDelete
Oh nice! This makes those pieces of sports fabric visible as opposed to cut up in small pieces. Very nice. And well done to your son on completing his schooling.ReplyDelete
It's lots of fun! I hope you are having fun with it. I know it will be loved!ReplyDelete
it looks like a very fun quilt i'm sure your son will be thrilled with itReplyDelete
That is the perfect solution, Beth, and it looks fabulous too. It's a win win!ReplyDelete
He's going to love it! A true treasure from mom with love. Congratulate the graduate for me.ReplyDelete
Oh, a wonderful, simple solution! It looks great, and I love the way the blues in the log cabins set off the reds and oranges in the sport fabrics. He's gonna love it! Congrats to the graduate!ReplyDelete
Beth, I read this post first and then the previous one where you explained your dilemma. I didn't even notice the sports-themed squares. I was just admiring the patchwork outlines. You are such a loving, good mama.ReplyDelete
I knew it-I knew it! I had NO doubt that you would put that fabric on the front for your son!! That is how you roll!ReplyDelete
You are a great mom! ;]
