Stained Blue (or Grey?)

I got a lovely surprise today!

Regular readers will know I’ve been making a quilt for my nephew’s 18th birthday, as part of Sarah’s Stained Quilt QAL.

My fabrics are ‘It’s a Boy Thing’ by Michael Miller, and I picked up bargain yardage of the most sumptuous grey flannel for the back.

Some time ago I left the quilt with a friend who is learning how to use a long arm quilting machine.  I said there was no hurry as my nephew’s birthday isn’t until September.

When I called with her today, she had the quilt all ready for me!  Squee!!!

We had agreed on a large scale stipple, and it was the perfect choice.  It looks particularly good on the back too!

I’m saving the full reveal for when I get the binding made and attached. 

But the quilt definitely seems more grey than blue to me, so perhaps it needs a new name?
