Note before you start: This post details quilt number three of my nine quilts by Christmas series. Click here for an overview of all nine quilts. Click here for details on quilt one or quilt two. For quilts four to nine, stay tuned!
And at last! We have the first boy’s quilt! This pattern is Hideaway by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. It was a little fiddly at first to get those center crosses right, but then it came together very quickly because the rest of the block is SO big! I am really happy with how it turned out.
The finished quilt size is 67.5″ x 57.5″.
I really loved picking out the colours and fabric for this one. It’s quite the variety, mostly picked out from my local quilt shop – Marcelle’s Patchwork Cottage: a little Sunday Supper (Sweetwater for Moda), a little Flow (Zen Chic for Moda), a little Best. Day. Ever. (April Rosenthal for Moda), a little Grand Canal (Kate Spain for Moda), and a little Grunge (Basic Grey for Moda). There’s a few other wild cards in there that I don’t actually know what they are because I picked them up in mystery boxes in my early stash-building days.
The orange border and binding is from Flow by Zen Chic (Moda) and the navy plus border is from Sunday Supper by Sweetwater (Moda). The quilting is a square dance edge-to-edge design, and it’s backed in grey suede flannel.
And Master C seems pretty happy with it!
We’re going to smash out the remaining three boy quilts over the next week, so I hope you’ll be back soon!
