Finally a Finish!! Gavin's Quilt is Done!!

I have a happy boy at my house!  I finished quilting Gavin's quilt last week and stitched down the binding at retreat.  When I asked him how happy he is with his quilt he said,  "I --- am overjoyed!"  And so is Gramma.

























When he saw it on the design wall he just had to hug it.



















When he realized I was taking photos he wouldn't let me take any more, especially if there was any chance I might post them online.  (Almost a teenager, you know!)



































I seriously thought about getting rid of the book with the paper-piecing patterns in it.  I am so done with mythology quilts.  But then I got to thinking, what if Gavin meets a little gal some day who also loves mythology?  And I need to make a mythology wedding quilt.........

I am glad he is so excited. I think you should try entering it in a show, but I am sure Gavin won't let it go.

Sandy, Gavin's quilt is amazing....and his reaction, priceless! I know what you mean about paper piecing. Teajuana hosts a scrap club and they have a year long project every year. I really like the one she chose this year (http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/issues/christmas_flag_quilt)....just shoot me now....it's all paper piecing and I've started it!
