Here's a quilt top I just took down form my design wall. It's for my 15 year old son Alex. When he was younger I made him a jar quilt, which he used for awhile, and then he "graduated" to putting it on his bed with the backing side up. Okay, I can take a hint. He's now a too cool and sophisticated for a jar quilt, so when I saw this black and white Alexander Henry fabric called "Adventures of Nina" (I think) it looked cool enough to me. In the detailed photo you can see some fun cityscape fabric that is part of a Spiderman collection. (I think I'll keep that information to myself.)

So I made this quilt loosely inspired by a commercial pattern. I called Alex into the room to look at the finished top and I think I got a shrug of approval, but I'm not sure.

Aren't boys brats sometimes??! It looks cool to me but you know, I'm, like, 50. . .

I think it is a cool quilt, one my Alex would like. He's 10.

that's a fantastic quilt. man, I wish I had bought some of that "Nina" yardage back when I first saw it. Now it's completely gone from the market :-(
