I wondered what I was going to make because I already had planned on making him a blue, green, yellow and orange quilt, which was his first color requests a few months ago.
    Then I decided to look through my scraps to see what I really had and decided I had enough. I drew out a block on scrap paper and calculated the number of blocks I'd need. After getting the blocks completed I left them on my design wall a couple of days to decide if I wanted sashing or not. I decided on black Kona cotton sashing with blue connecting blocks and blue sashing. All made with scraps except the black Kona cotton. I'm binding in the black and then using some of my leftover scraps to make the back.
    What do you think?
    Very nice!!! I love it! You did a great job :thumbup:

    Echo the comments about the sashing really setting this off. The black + blue really works well.

    He'll love it. My grandson is 10 and is out growing the quilt I made him. He's already asking about a new one he even told me he'd pass his down to his brother If he got a new one, but that he would sortof miss it on his bed. :=) He sleeps with it summer and winter. I'm planning on doing a more grown up one this time and you've given me a some good ideas
