My youngest son is dino crazy! I have been making this for about 2 months on and off, it's definitely the hardest quilt I've ever made. I did wish I'd never started it at times but here it is!



A close-up of a mosasaurus, I love how the teeth worked out Cheesy



This is the back, dino skeletons, you can see the dino paw print design I used to quilt the damn thing



Finally here's my son with his new quilt, do you think he likes it?





I'm so pleased, he loves it so much Cheesy He brings it downstairs every morning and then it's up again for bedtime.

P.S. Please don't judge me on the mismatched, un-ironed pyjamas  Wink

That must have been a pain in the butt to make but the smile on your sons face should definately make it worth it.

Well done on finishing such a big project so well!

Wow, what a fantastic quilt! Fodder for a child's imagination, for sure. You've done a terrific job with it. Thanks for sharing. (And yes, we do like pics!)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
