A new quilt

I love making quilts for the boys. You saw Jahn's planet log cabin quilt.

Well Ben liked it so much that I made him one also. I had made too many of the blocks when I made Jahn's quilt, so I had a head start of 14 blocks. I had to buy a little more of the planet fabric and Don stopped by the LQS one day for me - he works about 2 blocks from the quilt shop (and yet he never spends his lunch hour browsing fabrics - go figure).

Now I think I'm done making quilts for the boys for a while - unless something else clever catches my eye.

I asked Ben if I could borrow his quilts to take to the monthly sew-in at Anacortes and he told me that I could, but that he needed them back by next Wednesday, when he is having a quilt marathon. When I asked him what that was exactly, he said it was when he put all the quilts in his house on the floor and made a display of quilts and pillows. I hope we are invited.

That Ben, he cracks me up. It sure is nice of him to let you borrow his quilt LOL.

LOL! What a hoot! I love the way Ben thinks. And do you think his grandmother might have a wee bit to do with that??? ;-)

He is a doll!

The idea of Ben's quilt marathon is too cute! I hope you get to see it!

Shirley at stitcherydo on my blog roll has a bird (seagull I think) which can be a boy's quilt.
I have an airplane pattern, if you want one of those.
I have a hard time with boys stuff.I usually end up doing music or black things's hard compared to my regular quilts I do.

I posted and forgot to say, that Ben is quite funny! Very cute too!
