I will be quilting it myself, and I haven't decided if I will machine quilt it or hand quilt it. I need to get it quilted quickly, as his last day with us is December 4th, so machine quilting is the most likely outcome.
And as something of a happy accident, I think it has a somewhat Native American feel to it, and he is also part Cherokee Indian. I hope he will like it.

I've made one like the top quilt before). I pulled out the strips that I wanted to use for the top quilt and actually made it first. Then I used what was left to make the bottom quilt. In fact, one strip is partially in the top quilt and partially in the bottom quilt.
I'm really happy with how both quilt tops turned out. They look very different from each other. I'm glad that I pulled out all the darker purples and didn't use any in the bottom quilt. I really like the pastel look of the bottom one and I think the dark purple would have detracted from that.
