Making quilts for boys is challenging. Can I get an amen?? And I never have quilts suitable for guys laying around in my quilts to gift stack. Case in point. Around Christmas time, I told my niece she could come pick out a quilt. She came over with her husband, and her two children, Jenna and Jeffrey, to decide what one she wanted. She left with two because she couldn't decide and her darling Jenna left with one, too. There stood sweet Jeffrey. I felt so bad that I didn't have one that he would like so I promised him I would make him one. That's when the challenge comes in. Trying to decide on fabric and what would be a great boy quilt that wasn't babyish. This is what I came up with....I think he will like it, don't you?
The backing fabric is by 3 Sisters called Passport. We had just gotten in the shop last week and I knew that was the perfect backing for Jeffrey's quilt.
I can't wait to give it to him!!
Have a happy and warm Wednesday!!
