This one is a batik.
It is rather dark and also kind of a floral.
My only question is whether it might be too much of a floral for a thirteen year old boy.
The print is puzzle pieces.
The green is not as lime green as the batik.
Oh my, now I don't know which to choose.
Those greens are really a lot more lime than they appear in the photograph.
The purples run from blueish to pinkish but the variety isn't bad.
I am not sure how to go about putting them all together as there is no place to just lay them out. I might cut them in multiples of two or three inches to make it easier
Ben plays soccer and there is a lot of that fabric ... and it contains purple and green.
The purple stripe at the upper right is plentiful but a bit boring to use as a border.
There is the fish batik I picked up at the Tokyo Dome show and a green batik in a large amount.
Well, now I have time to think this over. Tonight I have to run a Cub Scout Pack meeting. Tomorrow I will be getting things ready for a week long Scout camp. If I can decide by tomorrow, I could get the borders measured and marked and cut so I could work on the border at camp.
When I made the big boy quilt for brother Paul, I never asked. (and he liked it fine as far as I know).
And, knowing Ben, he will be happy just to have something a bit bigger and less juvenile than his alphabet quilt now on his bunk.
Decisions, decisions, always decisions! Shall I just flip a coin?
