Quilt Festival

Here is my quilt for the quilt festival. This is the second quilt I made and the first one to get professionally quilted. I made this for my sons 13th birthday, just over 1 year ago. The main fabric is a batik with lizards. My son loved dinosaurs from the age of 4 and wanted to be a paleontologist. As he got older his interests widened to reptiles. Last summer he did a 3 week college course on Reptiles and Amphibians of Missouri. This quilt is a Terry Atkinson design called Tic Tac MO. As we are Australians living in Missouri for 3 years it is the perfect quilt design.

I just realised this is the third quilt I made if I count my little Australian wall hanging. Oops

  3. I really like this. I have two boys and know it can be hard to sew for them sometimes as opposed to my girls. This is so nice!
