Sampler Quilting

Fresh in the morning sun is a snapshot of my first quilt top that is almost completly quilted!
I didn't know what to choose, fabric wise, the choice was so overwhelming. I ended up choosing the border fabric (bottom left) first then a co-ordinating solid in that lovey periwinkle blue. There are alot of stripes and plaids in this quilt as I chose them so I could give the quilt to my eldest child, a boy. At the time he was just over two years old. Now he is almost 11! All things going well the quilt will be on his bed before this birthday.

Great job on the quilt Bec - I really like this one!

Very nice, he'll love it. Your very first quilt? Would have been a lot of work for your first, but a great teacher.

Better late than never, I'm sure he will love it! That reminds me, I have a knitted matinee jacket that needs to be finished for my son who is now 35...somehow, I know think he will want it but quilts, now that's a different story.
Well done for getting it finished.

Looks fantastic Bec. It certainly looks like a perfect quilt for a whipped 11 year old boy. LOL!

Looking forward to see the whole quilt. I love sampler quilts, I`ve started on Dear Jane... last year, done one block in red..... for the "big one" and finished 5x5 in blue for a baby size, ready for quilting... well, many are ready for quilting....
I`ll try to send some rain your way... All the best hk :)
