Design Wall Monday

I've been trying really hard to finish up some projects around here, but I keep getting side tracked. 

While I was working on making donation pillow cases, I decided that I needed to see if I have fabric that would be appropriate for teenagers. I found what I was looking for, but also found four fabrics that I thought were fun and needed to be used in a quilt. I started playing around with sketches and then found an old pattern that I've used called BQ

Needless to say, I finished the pillow cases and started a new quilt. Here's what I've come up with so far.

It's hard to see in the picture, but the large squares are bikes, fishing lures, dirt bikes and hand tools. I plan to add a small border (probably yellow because all of the large squares have yellow in them) and follow it up with a larger green border. The binding will probably be black. 

I have enough of the novelty fabrics to create another quilt and think I will do so, but not add borders. As is, this quilt top measures 54" x 72" and would make a nice donation quilt for a young man. I also like the fact that I'm using up stash.  :-)

What are you working on today?

Check out what other quilters have on their design walls today.

Very nice boy/young man quilt - and good for you in using up stash.

I have used BQ many times to use a variety of focus or theme fabrics, panel blocks, an also to pull together swap blocks. They go together quickly. Yours looks great!
