My son moved in to his dorm room today. I just finished his quilt at midnight last night-phew that was cutting it close!
I cut stencils for the center squares and stenciled them with textile paint before sewing it all together. ALl of the designs are symbols from my son's favorite geeky and sci-fi books, movies, tv shows, video games and web sites. My son is my sci-fi movie watching buddy. I'm really going to miss him when he is away at school. Making this quilt was therapy for me. It's not perfect but I feel better thinking of him sleeping under it when he is away at school
