Lucas' First Quilt.


This is my eldest grandson, Lucas.  He's ten in this photo.  He has since turned eleven. I forgot to post this.  It was around the time I stopped making cards and I never looked at my blog so I forgot about it. He attends a christian academy.  For his end of year school project.  He had to make a depiction of a cross.  He could make it out of anything he chose, but it had to be made of something that would be permanent.  Since I know how to quilt I told him I would teach him if he wanted me to.  He chose to make a quilt wall hanging.  He chose all the fabrics.  I cut the pieces with the rotary cutter.  I felt his was still too young foe that since I still cut myself occasionally.  He did 100% of the sewing.He did an amazing job at sewing and quilting.  I was very impressed.  He named it "The Light of Jesus."

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
