This post belongs to my Nine Quilts by Christmas series. Click here to see how it all began. Click on the following to see quilt one, quilt two, quilt three, or quilt four. For quilts six to nine, stay tuned!
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!
One last boys quilt to share this week, and then three more girls to finish the series. I’m excited to show you the rest! Don’t forget you can sign up to receive notifications each time I post a new blog – it’s an easy way to make sure you don’t miss the rest!
