Magic: The Gathering quilt

Special guest blogger today, my 11-year-old son Cedric!

I have been working on this quilt for about two months now after my Settlers of Catan quilt was over the size limit of the Vermont Quilt Show Festival, but I am very happy with how this quilt came out. It is based off of the game Magic: the Gathering, which I have a lot of fun playing and looking at the art of. I chose the border and back to look like the famed card Black Lotus, which gives you all five colors of mana, which are the five symbols on my quilt. The name, Alliance of the Planeswalkers, is inspiration of the Lorwyn Five, which are the five main planeswalkers of Magic. There is one for each color, and the silver background is meant to stand for colorless cards, mainly artifacts. The quilt is going to go onto my bedroom wall.

(Note from Mom: He did this himself, the fabric planning, the measuring, the ironing, the cutting, the applique circles, the y-seams, and the quilting!! I helped only with digitizing and embroidering the symbols and with the binding. He's feeling some righteous pride!!)
