Oldest Son's Quilt

I finally finished my oldest son's quilt this weekend. I am glad that I did, it was a nice surprise for him to come home from his State Competition for Skills USA this weekend where he won 3rd place against 26 students- to a bed with clean sheets, a new quilt and a new pillowcase that I had made.
My husband had picked out a Simpson's TV Show fabric for the back. My oldest son did not like it. So I picked out this blue flannel from my stash- its interesting that the other Tshirt quilt I made him (my very first one) has the same exact backing. The binding on the quilt is also blue.
I love this one shirt- it was the back. It truly explains my son and how hard he works for everything he has and will have in the future. Recently I had sent pictures to a coach of my middle son running Track. She said that she is appreciates the work ethic we instill in our children and that they could all three be poster children for their Cross Country/Track Motto that says Hard Work = Success
