sK8 Finished!

This quilt is for my 13 year old nephew. He loves riding (?) his skateboard. I wanted to make a quilt for him, but 13 is a tough age to please. I found this cool skateboarding fabric at eQuilter (ON SALE!) Perfect! Then I gathered complementary patterns along with a hand dye. And put it together. It is a simple piecing, 10" squared sewn together, then free-motioned. I f-m'ed in a zig/zag pattern. I wanted it to be rough and appropriate for him. I ran out of the thread Thursday night and bought some yesterday so now it is finished!
