So here is my quilt for Master P! This lovely young man loves animals, so this quilt was a perfect match! The pattern is Lucky by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. The fabric is entirely Big Sky by Annie Brady for Moda. The finished quilt is 63″ x 77″.

Those bears are SOOO cute!

I quilted this one with a leafy design – attempting to keep it natural and outdoors-y!

Master P seemed pretty excited that the quilt matched his new animal-themed room decor!

So there you have it! We’re now on the home stretch of sharing these quilts, with three to go. Looking forward to it!

This quilt went to Master N, the “middle child” of all the nieces and nephews. To be totally honest, Master N sure knows what he likes, and it was his approval that I was most anxious to receive!

The quilt pattern is double-crossed by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter. The finished quilt measures 61″ x 75″. My colour scheme is quite similar to her original – I just couldn’t help being drawn to those blues and greens! The fabrics are a truly random selection from my stash – I couldn’t begin to tell you what’s included in the center panel!

The border fabrics are a green plus from Sunday Supper by Sweetwater (Moda), and navy ovals from… you know what? I’ll have to go back and check! (It’s still in the shop, but I forgot to write it down!). The backing is a royal blue suede flannel, and the quilting is modern circles.

Master N was a bit so-so to start – and wouldn’t even unroll his quilt for a photo for me (as evidenced below), but he quickly warmed up to it over Christmas day, and was stretched out and chilling on it before long. When I visited his house the next day the quilt was on his bed, and then dragged out to the swag for his camp-out that night. I’m counting it as a win!

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!
