Something New

I gave the daughter of a good friend a quilt for her high school graduation last year. Her son was standing nearby and said he couldn’t wait to see what I made him for graduation this year! Well, it is time to get thinking.

I had a FQ bundle of these suede looking fabrics that I picked up from Connecting Threads a few years ago. I wanted something masculine, but not too old looking and definitely something simple. So I cut these rectangles and will add in the strips shown above.

I’m sure the arrangement of squares will change, but it feels good to be started on this one.

Have a great day!
