I recently made a quilt for my good friend Simon and his 1 year old son Riley.
The criteria for selecting the fabrics and design were that the quilt needed to:
a) feature blue heavily
b) be awesome
So, with some help from the boy, I selected the above bundle of fabrics at GJs. After some playing around we settled on this fairly simple design, in order to let the fabrics shine:
And then, guess what, one of the fabrics does shine! ...well glow... it turns out the Star Wars fabric is glow in the dark!
It turned out that one of the fabrics I picked was designed by "Riley Blake", so I had a nice convenient name tag on the selvedge of that fabric!
I did different quilting in each of the sections, including loop-de-loops in the red section to mirror the print.
And after binding in red... a fantastic new quilt!!
Here it is with a happy dad after being gifted:
And it's plenty big enough for him to grow into...
Yay for a successful quilt!
