Quilting fun with my son

This fall my youngest son will begin grad school to get an MFA in Costume Design and Technology. He graduated in May with a degree in Theater concentrating on Costume design so he already has been sewing for several years. He is excited to move into his first real apartment soon and we have had fun collecting stuff to truly make it his own. But today was the most fun yet as we started this quilt to hang on the ell behind his couch. We are all fused and ready to start stitching tomorrow. This is our interpretation of a quilt inspired by "London Tube" by Zen Chic.

Love the colors of the quilt--cool design. I have made a lot of costumes in my life--always fun to find that perfect piece that makes the costume come alive!! Think of all the types of different fabrics and accessories he will encounter!!

Costume Design sounds like a very fun degree (although I'm sure it's a lot of work--just creative sounds more fun than most). Best wishes to your son--so fun to set up one's own place, especially with such a lovely chic quilt!

As my Irish friend always said: he didn't lick it off the grass ;). But with a talented mother like his, how can it be different?

I love the quilt. It sounds so exciting for your son to be sewing costumes, I have a friend that used to do that for opera.

What a great idea! It's so masculine, and yet trendy. I would love to see it in "real" life. Is the background brown or black? I really love this quilt.

It's rare to see such interesting male quilts (IMO), I think it's looking great
