6-1 Andrew got to see the top today and has given me approval to quilt it. He also approved the back. yeah, I might just have time to get this one done by his B-day on the 7th!
This what Andrew picked out for the back. The characters are raw-edge appliqued to the pieced material. I had an Aladdin sheet picked out b/c I liked the colors and he said, No Thank you, I would prefer if you did something different. (I can use the kid sheet some other time I guess) We looked through all the panel pieces I have and this is what he wanted.-
update: Andrew called me and said go ahead with the snake border, he also likes the idea of spiders and a frog. He wants his middle name to be "Danger" so add that to the front too.
Then I asked if he 'wanted' anything else- he answered, yes, a T-Rex and a Bear and a Goose and a Fish (can the goose look like it is eating the fish?)- sure
Oh and can the Bear be a Polar Bear and can he have a Monkey on his back?
(I seriously don't know if his mom is putting him up to this or what- I took notes and will do the best I can to meet his expectations. I think several of these critters can be appliqued on the back using kid prints)
Andrew giggled and said- bet you will be up all night working on my quilt- I answered that I would love every minute of it, just like I love him every minute!
I am working on a quilt for grandson, Andrew's 6th B-day in June. He picked out the fabrics, I cut them with my large Tumbler Die on my GO. I think some of these prints are left over from when I made skater shorts for Andrew's uncles, many years ago.
He decided he wanted his name on a RED border and he wants a RED back.
I wanted to try my chisel die out to make a border. The more I played the more I think this looks like a snake! Karlee said to keep the snake and add some spiders. She is sure Andrew will like spiders and snakes.
I asked her if she would like a snake on her next quilt- and she said NO!
I will check with Andrew and/or his mom before I get too far along with this border idea.
I am cutting everything from scraps/stash so I don't have enough to border the whole quilt the same.
