However, there's light at the end of the tunnel and the worst is over. The launch went well and the project was well-received. So having slept most of yesterday away and catching up, today I counted the days until my youngest 11th birthday... 15 days!
And I realised that he really wanted a quilt to match his brothers http://my-quilts.blogspot.dk/2014/01/i-finished-longjohn-quilt-week-ago-and.html (which literally has replaced a duvet since January and is contantly being dragged to the sofa as well). Seeing the love Sven-C has for his quilt, how can I not grant Jens the same gift. He's really into very few colors right now and quite manly quilts. He keeps telling me he's NOT a princess... Like I don't already know *big sigh*.
So it all comes down to this... I got 15 days to create something big, soft, boy like and wonderful for him.
Challenge accepted. I'm going for waves in grey and greens... I started off with a pile of HTS - still to be trimmed.
A lot of squares have been cut.
And I'm going with this pattern but bigger of course. Waves from Modern Neutrals by Amy Ellis.
Definatly a do-able project I think. I personally would have preffered a bit more playfulness and less strictness... But this one is for Jens and I think he will love this pattern. My littlelist little man :)
