Random Quilt

About a year ago, I attempted to improvise some blocks. I cut fabric without rulers or specific measurements. I made some blocks that represented special places, events, and memories of my youngest grandson. There was no real plan. I just made blocks and tried to fit them into rows. The fabric I used was anything I had on hand…some quilt store fabric and some not. I wish I had not used the denim since it is so drab.
I put the quilt rows down a few months ago, because I did not know where I was going with this quilt. I had shown the top two rows to my grandson and I told him the stories attached to each block. He asked me to include dinosaurs and space, so I did. He recently has become a fan of Mario and of Pokemon, so I included them. Darth Vadar and light sabers also had to be added.
I started working on the quilt again this past Monday, and I finished the top today. I like the story behind each block, but I am not sure about the “randomness” of the blocks. I was planning to piece the remaining fabric for the backing, but that might be too busy. So, maybe I will just add a solid backing and add number appliques to represent the five  years.
