A quilt for Jahn-Zyel





After the 5K day we gave Jahn his new quilt. He is going to be 9 in September and I figured he was old enough for a big boy quilt, rather than a little boy I Spy quilt. He is very interested in the solar system and I found this fabulous fabric of planets.

The top on the bed - colors are not great, the pale part is really blue . . .


Here is Jahn and his quilt in the parking lot of the 5K race - colors are much truer.

It was a great day and Jahn loved his new quilt.

How could he not love it? What a treasure. Log cabin is one of my favorites - it never ceases to amaze me how one pattern can hold so many different looks.
