Description

I have started a new quilt!  This one is for my 15 year old grandson.  What to make for a boy?  I decided on the popular chevron strips and polka dots.  Went with a green for his school colors!  I think he is going to love it.  Once again a basic quilt.  I cut out 5 1/2 inch squares so once sewn together they would be 5 inch squares.  The material is cut and I am currently sewing the squares into rows. 
 
4-3-13 I have finished piecing the quilt and made my quilt sandwich.  Today is the day I start quilting it.  Will try and post a pic later.  Hoping my thread I choose for the quilting looks good.  It was really hard picking out thread for the black, green and white!

It's so hard picking guy fabric but you nailed it! Love green, black and gray combination.

This will be a cool quilt and green is a perfect choice with the bold zig zag and polka dot prints. Great choice for a teen. I want one!

I signed up to follow you. I am recently retired from teaching too, elementary. I've started quilting again and loving it. While working I was able to quilt, but never could get anything finished. It is so great to be able to follow through on things and work them through to completion.

@ Charwirfs.....Yeah, isn't it wonderful! With being so busy at school I only finished 2 quilts before now. Now that I am retired I love nothing better than going to my "area" and quilting. Another teacher friend of mine who is retired we take quilting classes go on shop hops and quilt shows. Loving it! Going to follow you also. Keep in contact!

Just checking in again. Wondered if you finished this fabulous quilt. If so, picture please. I have not been sewing much since last we shared. We had a major move and just today I set up my sewing area again. I have managed to keep busy on some smaller projects during the move. What's new with you?
