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. :-)
