    Red face XL twin for my son's dorm - he actually requested!

    So I was thrilled when my son actually asked for a quilt for his dorm room. Some of you might remember over the summer when I posted my original fabric choices as a question on another part of the forum. I hated them when I made the first block. I took some sage advice, revamped my choices (kept two, but moved them around within the block), and now it is finished! I can't wait to give it to him!

    I'm not just buying fabric, I am supporting the economy...

    A bad day in the sewing room is better than a good day at the office.

    I am sure that he will love this quilt. Your quilting looks great! This was a pattern that I just couldn't get when I was taking my long arm classes for my new machine. I just have a terrible time going in opposite directions like that! I tried talking to myself, but this one will take lots of doodling and practice for me!

    True confessions time: I had the quilting done at my local shop by a fab gal named Paula. It was .015/inch. Fantastic price for a fantastic job!
