I have a nephew who should be making his entrance any day now so had to make him up a quilt. It's harder to find and design a boy quilt without getting into novelties, which are fun sometimes but not what I really felt like working with this time.
I actually dug these fabrics out of my stash from a project I gave up on a few years ago and repurposed them here!
I'm really liking the design of the quilt and am thinking of writing a pattern for it, maybe re-do it in newer fabrics? What do you think?
I really love how the back turned out!
The whole quilt is about 45" square, which is small for me. I like to do quilts that will last the kids for awhile, hopefully they will wear them out before they out grow them.
I think if I re-do this one I will add at least another row, which means I have to decide which way is the "top". Do you like the rows going vertically (the very top picture) or horizontally (the second from the top picture) ? I'd also make the middle row a nine patch like the edges. That should get it up to about 45" x 59", which is a nice size.
