It's beautiful.  I loved how you divided the panel and added to the front (and back).  It looks so fun.

What a wonderful gift!
The colors go very well together and the fabric is just perfect. I like the way you choose to put the pieces together.

I just love the way you used the rocket ship pieces with the other materials, a great way to make it fill up the "empty" spaces.  I think it looks better than a solid sheet of just the rockets.

Thanks! The rocket panel was a little bit odd in that it was a rectangular panel situated horizontally--wide rather than tall, and I definitely wanted the quilt to me laid out more portrait than landscape, if that makes sense, so that led to the way I cut it and pieced it Smiley

This is actually a photo of him on his baby brother's quilt, but he was just giddy over the entire quilt situation in general. Grin  He was rolling on them and shouting, "We got new blankies!" Cheesy  Needless to say, Mare did an amazing job.



I have some more photos to upload, but I've got one kid napping, one kid nursing and I'm supposed to be on a conference call in a few minutes. Cheesy  I'll be back!

Another great design of a wonderfully reversible quilt.  And I do love that propeller ray gun fabric: recently bought a yard or so of it myself!
