This quilt is for a young man who turns 18 today.
I decided a couple of weeks ago I wanted to make him a quilt.
I last made him one when he was about 9
and a couple of years later he asked for extensions
and I made it bigger!
But I thought it was time for a new one!
I had 5 blocks from my 3 x 6 bee this year
which I was going to use for James
and I decided to go with those.
It's a perfectly simple manly quilt
with fantastic quilting by Shenleigh.
I can hardly believe that I stood in the middle of Colombo Street
and 8.45 in the morning and took these pictures.
This was the busiest street in Christchurch
and now it's deserted apart from men in fluro vests.
(I think we must be the fluro capital of the world)
Close up of the quilting.
Every kind of digger known to man
seems to be hanging out at Christchurch.
2000-10000 truck loads of rubble a day
are coming out of our town.
Where you see the AXON sign, used to be one
of our favourite restaurants...
You can see all the broken windows in this building.
It's a war zone here!
I'm still using my ipod for these pictures
as I haven't heard yet about my SLR camera repair.
Anyway I'm stoked with how this quilt turned out
and I'm pretty sure Leim will like it!
