Siblings Together Quilt - chapter 2

Siblings Together Quilt Top 2

I'm hoping this quilt is suitable for a teen boy because I've made it for the Siblings Together charity with an older boy in mind.
    Possible teen boy quilt 

 I drew a quick sketch of my idea and then just grabbed the fabric and started randomly sewing. This is what it all turned into :) It was so much fun to make.

I used part of a Kona Classic Charm pack and part of a Kona Classic jelly roll. The light grey sashing is Klona Ash and the main sashing is Klona dark navy. Now I need to decide how to quilt it. Any ideas?

Happy Friday - it's definitely Friday today - I double checked! ;)

  3. Smashing quilt - those beautiful bright solids look great against the ash and navy. Seems a shame to have to quilt it and break up the solid blocks, but I'm sure you'll think of something fab!

  6. The quilt turned out great. Maybe keep it simple with the quilting and do some organic straight on it.

  16. I have been struggling with finding a quilt pattern for an older boy...this is exactly what I was looking for! How did you end up quilting it? The first thing that comes to mind is a geometric pattern quietly pattern...
