A quilt built for a boy!

I had to go out to Collaroy today to collect Guitar Hero from the school music camp.  Love the beach but today it was a windy grey day out there.  I stopped long enough to get some picks but it wasn't very pleasant.  There were still people enjoying their time though.  Grandparents were lathering sunscreen on a little boy and girl when I arrived - it was freezing and blowing a gale but they were still heading for the sand.  Bet those kids slept well tonight!

 And I am not sure that I would like to be fishing today either!

 No idea why this flag is there
 People were even out walking all over the rocks.

I didn't have much time today but I did manage to get one job completed.  I finished the quilt top for the ten year old boy in the family of five that we are helping.  This would have to be the simplest quilt top I have ever made but I can just see it sitting on a boy's bed can't you?  I do love that car fabric - thanks Del.  Andrea helped brain storm the design for the quilt - next job layering and quilting.  Better get some batting hadn't I?
I have had offers of lap quilts for all three of the children now which I am pretty pleased about and offers of other bits and pieces too.  Quilters and bloggers are such a kind and giving lot!

And now for bed.

Till next time.................happy stitching!
