Do The Wave

Continuing in my mission to make charity quilts for teenagers (see my blog post here), I've made this New Wave quilt from a free pattern found at Oh Fransson! I just made it a bit longer to fit the long legs of a teenage boy. I love the patterns that Elizabeth shares and hope to try a few more. You can see a previous quilt of mine from another one of her patterns here.

This one is made from fabrics that were donated to my quild and some that were in my own stash. Quilted with just a meander on my HQ16. I think the cars/surfboards/flames/Star Wars/ etc fabrics will put a smile on a hurting teenage boy's face somewhere. This one will be delivered to the local Project Linus coordinator at my guild meeting tonight.

It's a great idea and will be very kindly received, I'm sure. There are lots of teenagers out there in need of love and comfort.
I downloaded the zig zag quilt pattern too. Many thanks.
Blessings, Star

Love the pattern and the quilt, Anya. Bravo for your generosity. Teenagers are truly a forgotten group, as far as our giving them quilts.
