oh my, do I love this quilt!
I followed the purl bee's tutorial with minor exceptions: I wanted to use three bright colors, so I didn't do the solid row of white. I also cut 5" squares and added a 9th square to each row. I had planned on stippling this quilt but then I decided to use super soft minky fabric for the backing and just wasn't sure if stippling would ruin the softness of the fabric (does anyone have any experience with this?). After consulting with my mom, we decided that 1/4" quilt lines on either side of the zig zag seams would be best. I put in a green bobbin to match the minky fabric and white up top. One baby boy blanket finished! Gregg said this one is his favorite, I think that minky fabric won him over, he is man who appreciates the comfy in life.
Pattern: purl bee zig zag quilt
Size: 35" x 48"
I still have a set of fabrics waiting to be turned into a boy blanket but I just need one or two more and I haven't found what I am looking for yet. I think I need to make a trip to my local quilt store and that my friends will require waiting for August's craft budget to kick in. ho hum.
