Aaron's Quilt

Aaron's Quilt

I'm finally back in my sewing room after being out of the loop for a long while. I recently lost my beloved brother, and it was devastating for me. I didn't feel much like sewing or anything else. So here is my first finish... a quilt for a nephew that came over and helped me get some things done!


I chose to go with something that combined both contemporary and traditional elements. Aaron is a bachelor who likes blue. The gray background gives it a neutral look that should help it play well with whatever other design elements he has in his bedroom. This king size quilt should work well for his needs and age, I think. It's nice to be sewing again, and it was a joy to do something for family.
