Little Boy Patchwork Quilt x 2

Double smiles for a double quilt finish!  I am very happy to share my 2 latest quilts.  They are inspired by the It's a Big Thing collection from Moda.  This project was started months ago and it is now ready for showing :)!


BoyQuilt-4

This quilt is all about BOY stuff. Trucks, cars, stars and the different hues of blues throughout this quilt screams BOY. I first fell in love with the trucks/cars fabric and really wanted to do a simple quilt around that fabric.

After the main fabric is picked it was easy to pulled coordinating fabrics together to create this great combo. I used a simple along the seam-straight line quilting technique for this patchwork quilt. Keeping the lines simple and clean. 

BoyQuilt-3 

For the binding, I used a coordinating stripe fabric. 

BoyQuilt-5 

Goes well with the second quilt as well (same quilt top and binding, just a different backing print) 

BoyQuilt-6 

My 2 boys are 6 and 4 now and have big boy quilts of their own, so I will not be keeping these two quilts around the house so they are available at my little Etsy shop HERE and HERE

I love how they came out! They are both so fresh and fun, and the size will make it so they can be used for many years. Well done!
