Little Boy Blue

I was asked to make a child quilt for a boy, it couldnt contain any girlie colors or symbols (like flowers).  Us quilters can't understand why mothers arent' teaching their children to love all colors.    I did this boy quilt within a week.  Amazing what you can do with a deadline.

It is all blues,  the burgandy is a match for the backing which is an adorable fleece print with doggie emblems.   It measures 44 x 55.  It is not a UFO but it did all come from stash, which applies to everything these days.  Stash is plentiful this year.  I am blessed.






I'm joining some of my favorite linky parties this week .............................................

Child Quilts - 3 finishes

This will be a mini quilt show of child quilts finished.  I wanted to add to my stash of child quilts for a special friend who wants to pick 6 of them to gift to her great grands.

First up  is my version of the Mary's Strippie from www.MaryQuilts.com.  I consider this a UFO finish because I cut the kit for it last Nov or Dec?   This pattern is so fun to practice your FMQ on.  I call this one Mary's Strippie 18-4 because it is the 4th one this year.  It gets tiresome to come up with names for so many quilts.  It finishes at  46 x 54.



and my favorite vision is always the back ............................
notice my sheltie puppy "Kelsey"  is peeking her head in the photo.  I've not been able to get a good full pic of her yet, she won't stay still long enough






next up  is  what I call the Pink & Black strip n flip.  I saw a similar version on a blog somewhere and made up my own dimensions.  This one finished at 38 x 46.  Backed with fleece.




Finally,  this is the Pathways quilt,  a free pattern on quiltingismytherapy.com by Angela Walters.  Naturally, I also adjusted the size of this one ...  46 x 54.   It is backed with a soft blue and white flannel.  I quilted it allover with overlapping circles.




Happy finishes, all washed, dried and fluffy.
