Quilt Festival, My Favorite Quilt

Quilt Festival
To date this is still my favorite quilt. I suppose it's because of all the love that went into it.
I made it for my son the year he graduated. He was planning to move out West, and I wanted him to be able to still be "wrapped in his mother's love".


This quilt has travel to California, Maine, and now resides back out West, in Nevada. He is currently working for a snowboarding company, going to school and as of this weekend, snowboarding in his free time.

I originally blogged about it way back here.

I love the block of the dark (black) it off sets the quilt so well. Thanks for sharing.

Your son's quilt is very nice. I enjoyed reading about it. I like the idea of giving pillow cases to match a gifted quilt.
