Quilt Top & Keith with Horsefly/Giveaway

I had the pictures arranged in a different order but they switched on me so I will talk about them backwards! This is a close-up of the quilt I am making for my son, Keith. I had gotten the light house fabric at a yard sale and realized there was enough scraps of it to make Keith a quilt. I already had the red fabric and thought it was perfect for the light houses.
This is almost the whole quilt top. I didn't have anywhere to take the top so I could get a picture of the entire top. It is 81" x 87". I hope to get it sent off to the quilts soon!
Betz White is having a give away. She is giving away some of the cutest bugs she has made out of felt. She ask that you leave a comment with your favorite bug story. I told her about a time when we lived out in the country and these huge horseflies would fly into our home every time the door was opened! One time one landed on the inside screen on one of the windows and my son, Keith, who was 1 year and 4 months old at the time just reached up and caught it! It was alive when he did this. I couldn't believe it! I grabbed my camera and got this picture of him. See the horsefly he is holding in his right hand?! The picture is not great as this was before digital cameras and I am not the best photographer in the world, but you can still tell it is a horsefly if you look close.
