Yesterday our quilting group got together to eat, talk and sew a little. I started on a quilt I have been planning for my youngest son, Brian. His birthday is in March and since it is his 35th I wanted to do something special to commemorate this milestone. Brian quit a very lucrative job in sales to become a high school science teacher. His wife, Sally, was extremely supportive, they moved back to the Tidewater area of Virginia and Brian started teaching. One of the classes he teaches is Marine Biology. I call this quilt "Chesapeake Blue". It is all batiks and the outer border is a beautiful Hoffman batik that has coral and kelp depicted in the fabric. I drew my color inspiration from the border. Just the quilt top is done but Jen said to share so here it is. I think it is beautiful and I really hope my baby boy likes it!
