My friend just had her 6th! baby, a boy, and this quilt will soon be his. I really love this quilt and I really want to make one in my size.
It's similar to this quilt and this quilt, but I added sashing, horizontally and vertically, through the middle for some variation. I also added a border. It's really not very different, so I guess it's no surprise that I love it.
For the backing, I used this large black polka dot fabric, that I designed and printed myself through My Fabric Designs. I love how it turned out, my husband says it looks like black olives, and now all I see are olives.
I wanted an almost ombre effect, but it just wasn't working until I added the grey, and then the greens really popped.
I quilted straight lines on either side of the seams.
Binding is a black crosshatch that I've had for a while. I'm not sure who makes it.
Finished size: 38in x 45in (after washing and drying)
Pattern: Inspiration here. Half square triangles.
Fabric: front--from stash back--my own, printed and designed at My Fabric Designs binding--stash
