A quilt for my grandson and upcoming tutorial is now a complete flimsy.
You may recognize some of the same black and white fabrics used in my recent house quilt.
At 80″ square, it is tough to have enough room inside during the wet, snowy weather. At night.
But you get the idea.
It has been a while, probably too long, since I shared a new tutorial. But, as part of the quilts I am making Number One Son and his family for their new house, I am creating this one. No name yet, probably something like Shine On. Maybe.
Colors–yellow and black.
I have a similar idea running in red, blue and white vintage.
So much fabric, so little time…
It was years in the planning, and quite a while in the making, but it is finally done.
It is based on the Heritage Stars pattern from McCall’s quilting 2012.
The color scheme rotates around the back, Husband’s home state favorite college football team.
And, the pillows match.
He was stunned. In 20 years I have never made a quilt just for him. I tried to include a few novelty fabrics here and there that have meaning in his life, like fish.
Overall, it is a success. And Husband, that patient and long-suffering man, finally has a quilt of his own.
This is my worst picture in a long time, but it is what it is and I don’t have the desire to do it again right now.
The Heritage Stars quilt is a top. 74″ square.
Hopefully will get it quilted in the next week or so.
Opinions wanted: black binding? or gold?
All the blocks on Heritage Stars are done!
Yes, you are looking at my “design bed.” But, there has to be a safe place for quilts to rest while they are works in progress. It seems appropriate to give them a taste of their future lives.
Creating it left a number of “waste triangles” that I am making plans for–maybe a couple of pillows to match?
Anyway, assembly and three borders next.
