Christophers’ Quilt

The second quilt I made is in the Joseph’s Coat  pattern. It was made for Christophers’ high school graduation in June of 1996

The fabric choices in this quilt are very important. I used some fabrics from shorts, jams and pants that I had made for Chris as he was growing up. The fabrics that I did buy all had prints that relate to things Chris played with or was interested in as a child. I was especially happy to find a fabric that looked like lego blocks because Chris spent more hours with his legos than with any other toy.
There are also two embroidered pieces on this quilt. One commemorates the first time Chris made the honor roll and when he got his drivers’ license.
