Ethan's quilt got done just in time to enter it in the FW Quilt Guild's annual show. It didn't win a prize, but it was very nice to see it hanging in the show.
Golf and alligators is not an obvious choice for a baby's room, but I gave it my best shot. My buddy Joe wanted Ethan to be called "Ross Vegas" since he was conceived on a family trip to Vegas, but he was outvoted, so I named the alligator Ross Vegas instead.
Anyone familiar with the Masters at Augusta knows that the 11th, 12th and 13th holes make up "Amen Corner". I decided to incorporate these three holes in the border of Ethan's quilt.
My buddies who golf immediately recognized "Hogan's Bridge" by the 12th green.
Here's Ross playing the 12th. Sadly, he triple bogeyed 12 and decided to eat the 13th pinny instead of playing the hole. I quilted the broken 13th pinny on the right side below the larger alligator, and showed the larger Ross Vegas eating his club.
Here's a close-up of Ross still happily playing the 11th hole. I embroidered "RV" onto his hat so he wouldn't feel nameless - lol.
