Another project checked off my list!

10 April 2012

I know it's been a little quiet around here lately.  Julie and I have been hard at work organizing the Modern She Made Swap.  The majority of the work is done now so hopefully I will be able to make my way back to my sewing machine soon!


Over the past 6 months I have been making quilts for all 5 of my nieces and nephews.  I finally finished number 5!  This quilt is for my 15 year old nephew, Seth.  Quilts aren't usually something that 15 year old boys get super excited about so I wanted to make something that maybe he would at least appreciate.  I kept the design modern and geometric. 






My husband did a great job helping me pick out a "manly" color scheme.  Plus these colors match Seth's room.  Hopefully he will get some good use out of it!



 I went with straight line quilting for this quilt for two reasons.  The first reason being I felt straight line quilting was the best fit for this design.  And the second reason is that I am terrified of free motion quilting.  :)



After I get a label put on this monster I will be sending it to it's new home!

I will be linking up with:

  2. That is a wonderful quilt for a 15 year old. My grandson loves my quilts but he says 'no flowers' and you sure did 'no flowers' with all those bright colors and geometric lines. A boy quilt for sure.
