My oldest turns 21 today.
He was the recipient of one of my first quilts in 2006. This was before blogging so I've a partially finished photo of it draped over a couch! It was from the pattern Turning Twenty. I made it while we were renting a house at the beach for a week.
He was 13. The quilt is still on his bed at home. (Which means perhaps I could get a real photo of it!!)
In 2011, when he left for college, I made him this quilt - I call it Infinite. This quilt lives at school.
You can read more about this quilt on this post. It is a fractal, significant since my son is studying math and computer science. After much trial and error, I made templates to assemble it. The back is a soft flannel (he is my baby after all!).
For Christmas 2013, I made him a Seattle quilt. He has spent a couple of summers interning in Seattle and it is a special place for him. This quilt lives in our family room - ready for him to come home for a visit and take over the couch!
Happy Birthday to my dear wonderful son!
I love you and am very proud of you.
