Boy 1 Quilt

Twin size Pow Wow Quilt

Love love love love love love love this (wrinkly) quilt top.  Once in a rare moon a quilt turns out better than I thought it would in my head…this one definitely did.

Pow Wow Quilt - Cluck Cluck Sew

My boys share bunk beds so I altered this a bit from the pattern to make it fit a thin mattress.

I made the sashing strips 1 1/2" instead of 2" and I left off the borders. It makes it about 65" x 85".

I mixed in lots of solids and small prints, the same fabrics as boy 2’s strip quilt.

The goal was to make a quilt he can use now and into his teenage years…during which he’ll love this quilt so much he’ll never leave me never ever ever.  :)

Pin It!

OK...I'm having a moment...cause I bought this pattern of yours to make boy quilts for my boys bunks in basically these same colors...... so cute!

And it's so wonderful I'm sure he never will leave you!

Ellyn said...

beautiful. But don't wish for him to never leave you... you'll regret that later! Wish for him to grow into an awesome adult who wants to take his quilt with him when he goes.

Beautiful- The colors, the pattern and the thought behind it:) I made this pattern of yours and I am happy to report that it is the FIRST quilt that I actually finished, binding and everything- including shipping it off to my newest nephew... Your blog is inspiring and your tutorials are wonderful!

Good job, both quilts are fun! The nightly news talked about the "blue" moon that will be here on August 31st...two full moons in one month, the second is called a blue moon, because two in one month is so rare..a "blue moon".:) (more science info than you needed today?)
