always time for a quilt

november already?  didn't mean to skip blogging for so long, halloween left me with no time to blog.  but there's always time to quilt, right?
this is a quilt i made a few months ago as a gift for a 7 yr old boy. 
i have had my eye on this darling quilt by film in the fridge which inspired mine.
and i wanted to make something like an 'i spy' quilt with a more grown up style.
also, i just love the 16 patch square.  love it.  so simple, but so eye catching.
 every block is the same but no two blocks are exactly alike.

most of the fabrics i used were by etsuko furuya, all ordered from superbuzzy.
then i filled in with random prints from my stash.
the backing was a great black/cream dot i found at joann's.
the gray sashing is also from joann's.  it's a kona cotton but i can't remember the name.

as for the pictures, they were taken in missouri(?)  we took a roadtrip last summer and the scenery was amazing as we drove up the middle of the country.  we pulled over just before the fireflies came out and snapped a few pictures on the side of the road.  it got dark fast, so we didn't get many pictures, but i'm so in love with how these came out.  i give all the credit to that random farm and the gorgeous sunset that day.
