This quilt was a labor of love for my ever growing boy, Dallin. I made quilts for the kids’ birthdays last year and finished them all in time except for his. I told him I’d make his eventually, and he was ok with that. 5 months later it is now draped across his bed, and he loves it! I do too. He has always loved the color blue…hence the mass amounts of it in this quilt!
I made it slightly smaller than the pattern. There are 35 (11.25″) squares of alternating Cotton + Steel fabrics mixed with some solids as well. The “cheerio” styled quilts have always seemed very vintage and homespun and I love that look. It’s funny how switching up the color palette can change the quilt. This seems much more modern and geometric with the darker colors.
The first night he had it on his bed he said, “This quilt feels so good!” I’m glad that he loves it.
