I found this quilt in the book
and just knew it was the perfect pattern for him . His favorite color is blue, and having plenty in my stash, the only trick was limiting my choices. This book is not only a great book for quilters who like using pre-cut fabric, but for those looking for ways to reduce that stash of larger cuts. I am hoping to get a strip cutter for my birthday, because lets be honest.....cutting lots of strips is BORING!
I did a very basic diagonal hand stitch over the design in a medium blue thread. I was surprised and very pleased with the optical effect it had on the front giving the sashing squares a slight twinkle in places.
