Brett loves dinosaurs, we found the big panel, a fabric book, and coordinating fabric that he really liked.

I used those to make the large quilt for him.

Brett has a mild form of autism and is home schooled. As a part of his home school program, Brett (then age 9) chose to make a small quilt.

He used the scraps left over from his quilt. I cut his blocks for him, but he did all the sewing, sandwiched the quilt and tied it.

We entered his quilt in our local county fair. He won a blue ribbon.

I also sent a picture of it in to my internet quilt group and Brett’s quilt was chosen “quilt of the month”.

Shortly after that, I took him to a local quilt show, he told the sponsors about his quilt and that he was “a world famous quilter”. Who knows, maybe Ricky Timms is going to have some serious competietion in the future?

Since then Brett has made a rail fence baby quilt and is now working with his mom on a bargello pattern.
