A New Quilt for Aidan and March Stash Report

This cutie pie, my 9-year-old grandson, Aidan, has informed me that it's his turn for a new quilt. 

























In his (barely) nine years I've made him not one .....

























..... not two .....

























..... not even three .....

























..... but four quilts .....

























..... AND a quilted Christmas stocking.

























After being a dedicated Miami Heat fan for several years he has just changed his loyalty to the Golden State Warriors, so he thinks he needs a new Warriors quilt.  I convinced him that a wall-hanging would be an even cooler idea.  


  


















I enlarged the logo and bought the fabric.  I'm planning to just make a simple raw-edge appliquéd top and free-motion quilt it.  It set my stash-busting back a little, but that will motivate me to get it finished quickly.

























Besides, I need to get it onto his wall before he changes favorite teams again.
