(Ok, I’m running out of creative names, forgive me!)
I think this might be the first boy quilt I’ve made, and I love it! This one matches the Fuchsia Seas quilt, but uses blues, oranges and browns. Again, it’s mainly Heather Ross prints, from both the Mendocino and Lightning Bugs lines (I even convinced myself to cut into some of my goldfish fabric!). I do love how the lines can be mixed and matched.
For the back, I happened to find some yardage of this seagull print, which is from the Heather Ross Lightning Bugs line. There’s a section of pieced strips from what I had cut off the blocks on the front, and a fun polka dot binding. As with the girl version, this one is free motion quilted and is soft and crinkly… just perfect!
A few of you asked about measurements for this quilt, so here you go!
This baby quilt used 30 blocks, 15 solid white blocks and 15 patterned blocks. Each block is 7.5″ x 10.5″. For this quilt, I used 6 blocks for each row, with a total of 5 rows. The small center white rectangle in the center of each patterned block measures 2.5″ wide. The length varies, since I was going for a random look, but in the past I’ve done them all 2.5″ x 4″. The resulting quilt, after washing, measures 39″ x 46.5″.
The white fabric is a cotton sateen that I buy at Joann’s. I use it for almost all my quilts.
Like the other, this one may be for sale, or I might decide to just keep it on hand should I need a baby gift in the future! (Sarah? Kim?)
