    My son, who is 7 1/2, asked me to make him a bed sized quilt. He then proceded to tell me it had to be an under the sea theme, and he started picking out fabrics at walmart, on line when he would see one he liked ..... well, I ended up doing raw edge applique, then using warm and natural batting with a flannel backing (because he insisted it hada to be flannel to keep him nice and warm), then I quilted the whole thing on my home machine and this is what I ended up with. He loves it and has slept with it every night this week (I just finished it last weekend and took it to quilt guild for sew and tell this past week). I cannot say I am excited about applique again again soon though.
    My soul is fed with needle and thread, my body with chocolate!

    Oh, I love this. I imagine that his little imagine goes wild looking at that scene. Just terrific.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That is so cool! Now I'm going to be looking at sea fabrics (there is a lot here) differently!

    Isn't it great to have a young man who knows what he likes? Love it! What a creative quilt.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    At least he didn't insist on SpongeBob and his friends. Your quilt turned out really nice!
