What was your inspiration?
The pressure was on! My sister in law asked, "Uh, so when does Terrence get a quilt????" Seeing as how the nieces in the house have a quilt, yet Mr. T did not... well, I just had to do it, Quilt Dude style. This is my brother's daughter's one year old son, so I wanted something colorful, but not overly so, since this is a boy quilt. I bought the zoo animals charm pack and built the quilt around it. And what are the chances that I have TWO Terrences with my quilts! [Remember the Pac Man video game quilt?] Terrence and Terrence, no relation.
What are you most proud of?
The block lettering came out good! I wanted it to look like the alphabet blocks we all played with as children, spelling out his name. I think I made a good choice also in the gray background - it makes the colors pop. Oh, and did you see the quilting? I quilted his name throughout the whole quilt, among the meandering.
