BirdMan, one of my 9 year old triplets, took a spin on the longarm and finished the quilting on his Christmas lap quilt.
He pieced this quilt in April of 2006. At that time he told me he wanted the backing to be flannel and gave me the mandate to purchase backing fabric for him. Well, It took two years but I finally did it! Life sort of got in the way over the last two years. It is amazing to me to think about how drastically our world has changed in the time it took to get his quilt finished.
He will be entering it in the Ky State Fair junior division this year but he said he wants a label that clearly states he would have finished this quilt a LONG time ago of mommy had just gotten herself together.
He really did a good job, didn’t run over any pins and even had fun!
he did great!
