Paul’s quilt

I finished all the blocks for Paul’s quilt.  I’m really pleased how it turned out.  It’s very teenager-like and just like Paul. He has mostly worn black with a little red for the last year or two so, of course, when I asked him what colors his quilt should be, he said black and red.  It has several of his t-shirts.  It is really a very interesting combination of fabrics: jersey knit, rayon, cotton quilting fabric and, of course, my old stand-by denim.  To me, it is too diverse, perhaps structurally unstable.  It’s funny, my husband loves and said it is one of my best, most cohesive quilts.

  3. It’s wonderful…..a man’s quilt, yes…..you really have an eye for what a young man would like…..he should enjoy it for all his days……your husband is very right!

    • Thank you. He had a lot of input and I collected a lot of his outgrown clothing an incorporated it into the quilt. He also picked out the red dragon fabric.
