    This reminds me of one I saw at the Hillboro Senior Center Quilt show for a son or grandson. He loved the Cin. Reds and it was a red and white color quilt with some of the white squares embroidered with various favorite player's names and number, and baseball statistics, his birthdate, and he proposed to his wife at a game so that was commemorated too.

    Find out what their hobbies are and see if you can get the fabric for them. I made an Amish pattern Quilts but used vintage cars with surf boards on the squares for my son-- he was in his twenties. That will give to some great ideas.

    I have made a Saints quilt for a 15 yr old as its his favorite team. Check with Mom and see if they are into sports, raceing of bikes,soap box derby,etc, My GS played in a band for years and he loved one with musical instruments.

    I'm acctually going out to get the new Marvel Super Hero Line of fabrics today. Because...well I'm a kid at heart. If they are into that at all, it might be nice for the quilt you are considering....:)

    I'm having the same problem. A quilt for my 14 year old grandson...I don't see him often...distance problem...any suggestions from anyone out there?
    Hello from Shenandoah Valley, VA. Quilting a few years. Love the process of creating the quilt top, but don't like making the sandwich of top, batting and backing as much. We have two Labrador Retrievers, a yellow and a chocolate. Blessings to all!

    Black nd bright colours seem to be very much in there realm. I would get a list of interest no matter how small from him or parents. My teenage nephew designed his own quilt and came with me to buy fabric and selected his own. All I had to do was follow his instructions. These children are encouraged at school to make their own designs etc so he should be very old. His 6 year old brother made his design as well. He wanted squares with dinosaurs in. His drawing was close .

    Find out everything you can about them. How about camo. You could do something in one color camo with the 12 year olds favorite things and then the same in a different color camo with the 15 year olds favorite things. Something that would carry them through their high school and maybe college years.

    My grandson (16 yrs) is not much into sports. I made him a Sudoku quilt using rectangles instead of squares. He helped me pick out the colors (and with the arrangement). Most of the fabrics came from my stash. Can't get the picture to load -- sorry, It was in blues (almost navy), yellows, and oranges.
