Default Young ‘men’ charity quilts

Our quilting group wanted to collect our CASA quilts last Thursday to have a count of how many we had for girls, boys, and different age groups. We need more for boys and especially the older boys. My question is what fabrics do you use for the teen boys? Most of mine are flowers or pink girly so do you use solid colors for guys? I offered to make a teen boy before the organization collects in December but kinda lost as to fabric …I appreciate your thoughts, thanks in advance.

Black and white quilts with an accent color (red or blue) seem to be very popular.

I’ve made some for teen boys that are rag quilts out of homespuns. I’ve also made the fleece quilts that are tied around the outer edge for a couple of my nephews. Those go together really quickly. Made one out of fishing fabric and strips in the warm wishes layout.

If you have some wild fabrics, the skateboard quilt pattern is a good one for teens.

Just about anything that isn’t flowers or pink. Boys like colors too

Made a special order quilt for my DS last year. He wanted it black white and hot pink. By the way he's almost 50.

Earth tones. Blues.
the pattern is what makes it - go for geometrics

Blue and grey or brown mixes are striking combinations that don’t look too feminine
