a quilt for a boy

inspired by this pattern.
fabrics used: moda's sweetwater pure line, random browns and blues, old plaid shirts from my husband
finished size 40 x 46
loved making it!  (although the instructions were more complicated than they needed to be)
gifted to a sister for her fourth boy
her nursery is brown and blue with stars (similar to my boy's) so i included a few stars in the quilting
i think my boy needs a twin sized version so you might see this again...

Love your higher contrast in fabrics.

There is a link to a Moda Bake Shop tutorial in the upper part of this post (where it says, Inspired by this pattern).
But I made this quilt in a different way via 4 Patch in a Square method. Sewed the rows together, set them on point and trimmed the whole quilt sides. Easy beasy.

I love love love this quilt. I have always wanted to learn how to quilt and this quilt has inspired me to take my first quilting class. I like this quilt so much more than the one it was inspired by. Great Job! You are amazing.
