busy, busy, busy

Not only are we busy, busy, busy with spring violin recitals, band concerts, youth baseball, marching in city parades & school field trips--our kids are winding down another school year. Yippee. They are gleeful and counting down the days to a blissful 3 month summer vacation which begins soon.
And that means mom busily trying to get this quilt completed & out of the way so our 8 year old does not spy it before his birthday rolls around.

The borders are sewn on and as I step back I am hit with the thought that this quilt is also quite busy, busy, busy! Okay. It's really busy, busy, busy! I will add a dark gray-almost-black binding to frame the busy-ness of this quilt. Keep everything intact. Otherwise it looks like these planes will take off and never return.

Definitely a Bold & Busy Boy quilt!

Hey- my boy quilts turn out busy too. He will love it and that is what counts. I think you did a great job coordinating the colors on this one. Good luck on not getting spied. Check your email, as I will be sending you a message shortly. ;) My guy is home sick today, so I am home, too. Kind of nice to get to rock him for a change.

It is busy, but it's also fun and energetic. Perfect for a little boy. I do agree with you on the border, those planes might just take off without it. Such a fun quilt, I really like the way it turned out.

I think a busy quilt is appropriate for a busy boy. Great job - I particularly like the way you used the striped fabric.

What a wonderful quilt for a special boy! I'm sure he will love it. You did a great job with the fabric selection. I need to get busy with some of unfinished quilts. ~Adrienne~

This quilt is wonderful! I bet he loves it! Best to you on getting it finished without his seeing. If I finished a project like that before summer vacation, it would sure make me feel accomplished and proud!

Have I remembered to tell you that I love your blog? *smiling*

Love the quilt! He is going to enjoy it for years to come. I love the plane fabric. I always tend to go with darker bindings too as they tend to be handled more frequently. Which obviously means they dirty faster. If it is dark it isn't so noticeable. Anything for less laundry!
