My 18th birthday present to my lovely nephew is pieced, long arm quilted, bound and washed!
I made this quilt as part of the Stained Quilt QAL, hosted by my roomy and friend, Sarah.
Thank you Sarah for hosting such an awesome, detailed and well thought out QAL. You rock!
When the fabrics (It’s a Boy Thing, by Michael Millar) arrived all the way from USA, they seemed very aqua/blue, and the quilt was quickly named Stained Blue.
But now, the quilt is predominantly grey. I love the Klona grey skinny sashing (thank you Fi!) and the snuggly soft grey flannel on the back.
So I think a new name is in order!
Now I don’t know about you, but something about the words ‘stained’ and ‘teenager’ in the same sentence makes me feel a bit icky (if you’re wondering where the ‘Stained’ came from in the first place, you need to ask Sarah!!).
I’m wracking my brains to come up with something arty, funky and cool, but so far, all I have is …
I would love to hear your suggestions (just as long as they are clean!). Birthday boy doesn’t officially become a man until September, so I’ve loads of time to stew over it.
