By special request, my 6th quilt was a nap/lap quilt for my youngest son, Ian. I took his request as a compliment. (Super nice when an 18 year old shows interest in "mom's" stuff. But then it's not unusual for my boys....because they are extra-ordinary!!) Anyway, I started asking about colors and showed him some block patterns. Of course, he wanted BLACK and other dark colors. Finally, I came up with this:
The block is called a "wandering star" but that little star reminded me of a Ninja Star...the martial arts kind that the boys would see in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons and movies. And the colors went so well with the theme that I named this one TMNT. Those "turtles" were pretty popular with most boys way back when. Anyway, put it all together and here's the finish.
And below, a TMNT halloween blast from the past (Ian on the left).
