Fall Baby Boy Quilt
I made this for a baby boy to be born this fall.
The problem is that I totally love it.
I'm not sure I will be able to part with it.
I worry about doing boy projects because there are so many more cute pink/girly fabrics that it's hard to find boy stuff.
But, I had the fabric in the bottom right corner with the cars and I decided to use it even though I have been hoarding it for months.
I hope this works for the intended recipient.
I am trying to get my house clean and organized before I start my next quilt like this.
And for me....so I remember how to do this next time...
Each square is about 11 inches square.
So, with 4 of them, it ends up being 44x44.
I started with 16 different fabric choices. (some were from the scrap bin!)
Cut them into 11+x13+ pieces.
Then cut off 3 1/2, then 2 1/2, then 1 1/2 and you have the big piece left.
leave the big piece on one end and the 3 1/2 on the other.
Mix and match the 2 inner pieces until it looks good.
Sew them together.
Trim to 11 inches square.
Mix and match the squares and the directions of the stripes.
