What materials did you use? I used various cotton outdoor prints that coordinated with his room. I printed images of Petoskey stones and a picture of the Mackinaw Bridge onto inkjet compatible 8 x 10 fabric sheets. I placed batting under the piles of Petoskey stones for a 3D effect. I finished it by quilting along the coastline in the water and outlining some of the tree trunks to 'pop' them in the busy forest print. I used the embroidery setting to label other family members home locations in Michigan.

What are you most proud of? I used his love of Michigan to create a quilt that would remind him of family, special places, fishing and his love of Petoskey stones. I asked Brent to pick out a couple fabrics he liked, the bold fish border was his choice, so I ran with a bold fun look to make him happy!
