Default Quilt for Grandson

Hi Guys,

Made this for my grandson.... he didn't want blocks he just wanted the star fabric and his favourite colour fabric- which is purple - which, he informed me on the telephone.... is NOT a girls colour - he was so stern he made me giggle! So I made this...... I quilted it with stars for him! We do miss seeing out grand babies.

Hugs

Caroline

great quilt. I have one waiting for the right bat to quilt for my oldest grandson--said he's "too old" for the ISpy quilt I made him about 5 yrs ago.

A beautiful quilt, very chic and stylish. From his concern about "boy/girl things" I guess your grandson is more of a boy than a man yet, but surely he will be able to keep using this quilt well into his adulthood, in his own grown-up home.

There is something about "boy/girl toys" I read once, I guess it goes also for quilts and other things. "How to know if it is for boys or girls: does it have anything to do with genitals? If yes, it is not for children. If no, can be used by both boys and girls".
