Last winter my youngest son told me his bed quilt was in need of replacement.
I asked him what color quilt he would like and he said blue and green.
While I work mostly with my own hand dyed fabrics that doesn’t mean I don’t have some “regular” printed fabrics,you know just a few.
I used to really love batiks and have quite a collection. So I dug around and find a few. HA
To make this a queen size quilt I had to expand it some and there are eighty blocks in the main quilt. I didn’t repeat a fabric.
I had kept this old issue of Quiltmaker magazine from September/October 2002 because I liked the cover quilt. It was leaves and I thought that one day I would make a version of this quilt. I changed the leaf shape a bit, but otherwise I am just following the pattern. I thought I would get it done faster if I didn’t mess around to much. But I am going to do the border different and try quilting it as I go in four big sections. I have been wanting to give that a try and this is the perfect project to do it with.
At first I thought I could get it made for his birthday in July, now I am just hoping I can get the top finished by Christmas.
I BELIEVE I will.
It was good to see this as a photo, I realize I need to move some blocks around.
