Mommy hugs.

Hello and Welcome, this week I have a quilt to show you that I made for my Son for when he heads off to college.  Above is a photo of it before I sent it out to get quilted. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I wanted something masculine and he can use any colored sheets that he would like to use. I did not want to use his college colors, I am sure he will get enough green and white when he heads out to Michigan State! 
Here is a close up of the fabric. I used Moonshadow Dance (Andover fabric) by Kim Schaefer
and now I have the finished quilt. 
 I had the quilter do a rectangular pattern thru out the quilt.
I am really happy with how this turned out and he loves the Minky dot  fabric that I used for the back of the quilt. I had to go down stairs to steal the quilt back to get these photos! I am calling this one Mommy, mommy, Mommy hugs- because when ever he needs me or want something he calls me Mommy 3 time, LOL.  I even tried to make a pillow out of the extra fabric. 
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all quilty hugs!

  1. This is perfect for a guy's college dorm!

  2. Heide, that's the perfect man quilt for a young college guy. I think you were smart to keep it in neutral colors too. You can't beat that Minky either for surrounding someone in a Quilty hug!

  3. So cute!! I made my kid's beds when we took them to college. They liked that. I'm making a quilt now and backing it with minky. Any tips on quilting with it? I've hear it is difficult.

  4. Fantastic masculine and very modern looking quilt. I'm sure your son will enjoy this quilt for many years to come.

  5. I think I was in the middle of commenting on your card for the week! But somehow got sidetracked! Love the beauty of this quilt and pillow too!
    I can't believe I have missed all of this! Wish I lived close by so that I could touch them!!!!!
    Have a great week!
