Quilts for Kids - A Teen Quilt

I dug this strange piece of fabric out of the quilts for kids fabric bin a few months back. It has scenes from what looks like a retro version of a night'a a little bit vintage in a lot of unique colors.

I really wanted to fussy-cut the fabric in order to preserve the scene depicted within the fabric. But if I did that, there wasn't really enough to make any impact within a quilt.

So I just cut it into rectangles with reckless abandon. I also cut some beige/tan rectangles to put together a simple patchwork quilt top.

It didn't seem long enough so I dug some matching scraps from my fabric stash and cut out some tumbler blocks and added them to the top and bottom of the quilt.

It's a little strange, but I'm hoping a teenager just might think it is cool...or weird enough to want to call it their own.
