Jes's Quilt

On Saturday my mom worked with me and we pieced blocks for a quilt for Jes.  It started a few months ago as a quilt for one of his friends, but things changed and it will be finished for my son instead.

I started with a design to incorporate 49er's colors as requested by his friends.  The colors are also the German flag color.  Jes is in Germany in the military so the quilt is (in my mind) his "souvenir" of his 3 years spent there.  The design idea came from a German aircraft insignia from 1918.  Jes works aviation maintenance.  So much symbolism!

I think it needs a strip between the blocks.  As I have a yard of red, it will probably be red. Next sewing day at church is in 2 weeks, so I have time to decide.
