My first full size quilt in the works

I made a deal with DH - I'd go to the movies with him on Saturday (he LOVES the movies) if he would not disturb me on Sunday while I spend it entirely in the sewing room. I can't believe how much I got done! My plan is to make 2 quilts by Christmas, one for each of my grandsons (ages 5 and 13). I let them pick the colors and I arranged several layouts for them to choose from. I got everything cut out for the older boy's quilt and pieced the blocks that needed that (most are solid blocks). They both chose very bold colors. Here is the layout Elijah chose.

These are such great colors together! What fun to get them involved in the process - just think how much more they'll appreciate their quilts.

I like it a lot. Love black and red together. Work will with the layout as well. Good job. TFS

RE: My first full size quilt in the works

Very exciting colors. They should really like their quilts having so much input. Who knows, with the fun of helping with the layout you might just turn one of them into a quilter.

An excellent way to handle the choices, Donna. Their colors and their choice of your approved layouts. Elijah chose well!
