This year our boys will be getting quilts for Christmas. I’ll be following the Road to Spring Quilt-a-long instructions.
The hardest part so far was picking out the fabric. The boys share a room, so I wanted the two quilts to coordinate, but not match exactly. Instead of picking out 20 different fabrics, I chose 13 so that some of the fabric can be used in both quilts.
Samuel loves green, so I picked greens and blues for his quilt.
Caleb still hasn’t shown much of a preference yet. I saw the red, white, and blue star fabrics and loved how they look together. Then at the next store, I found the green and cream star fabrics too.
The neutral fabric I’ll be using is just a plain unbleached muslin that I already had in my stash. The backing is also muslin from that same shopping trip. Now I just need to find a binding fabric, but that will be from my stash as well. A scrappy binding would be fun. . .
Hopefully these will look as good completed as they do in my mind!
