He picked this pattern because it looked like Ninja throwing stars.
Now that's a teenage boy for you.
I tried to get him to help me sew it, but he wasn't all that thrilled.
Once I got my sewing system down with these blocks they went rather quickly.
I finished this back in September and sent it out to Lynn for quilting because my parents were going to be in Utah in October. They brought this quilt and 2 others back for me and then I just got them over Thanksgiving when my parents came to visit. I hadn't planned on giving this to my son for Christmas, but at this point, with it being so close, it is going to get wrapped up. He does know what it looks like--at least in theory. He hasn't seen it all quilted and bound.
Lynn's quilting really did add to the quilt. Now I have to get busy on boy #2's quilt.
