Anyone who has ever tried to make a quilt for a teenage boy knows it isn't easy. I enlisted the help of my sons to design their own quilts. One of them, I finished. Minecraft Quilt. The other, I really should finish... but oh, my creative son. It involves a pieced sword, an appliquéd "creeper" (from Minecraft), trees, mountains.... it is really an art quilt, and I am a patchwork gal. I like chain piecing! What can I say. When I saw man designed Curious Nature by Parson Gray, I immediately decided to make these fabrics into patchwork quilts for my teens that would last for some years and look nice in their (currently shared) room.
here, at Jeni's blog called In Color Order. I made my quilts larger, using about 1/4 yard of 24 fabrics for each quilt. I bought a half yard bundle of the entire Curious Nature collection.
I used a solid binding, Kona Cotton in Pepper, for both quilts and a dark grey/black scrollwork patterned flannel from my LQS for the backing (it was 108" wide, yay, no seams!).
