Hello! It's been a while since my last blog post and I have so much to tell you! Life has been full and busy but I've managed to fit in some creative time. I started three quilts a few weeks ago and as they are all in the process of being gifted I will start sharing these with you.
I've been wanting to make an economy block quilt for some time. As this quilt is for my little grandson I wanted the focus block to be large enough to get his attention. Using this table by The Littlest Thistle the center blocks are cut at 6.5" resulting in a finished 12" block.
It took more time to troll my fabric stash for the right combination of colors and fun fussy cut motifs than it did to sew this one up.
The backing is an unbelievably soft minky from Michael Miller. With simple meander quilting, this is one very soft and cozy quilt!
So, this is my grandson's third quilt from Nana and he is just six months old. At this rate, how many will he have by the time he is 18 years old?!
