I started this top a few weeks back and had it nearly done when I realized that it wasn’t going to be nearly as big as I wanted. This will be a graduation quilt for a tall young man.
Then I got my Christmas gift from Daughter #1 and #3. Included was another charm pack of this same fabric! That was enough to make the quilt the size that I wanted it to be. They sure know me well!
I cut each square from the charm packs in half to yield rectangles measuring 2.5 by 5 inches before sewing. I cut an equal number of rectangles from a gray Kona solid.
I skipped the design wall for this top. I dumped all the pieces in a basket and just grabbed a piece and sewed. I love the random layout that resulted.
Those orange and turquoise bits sure pop!
This line is called Doe by Carolyn Friedlander. It is perfect for a guy quilt.
Looking forward to quilting this one up! Have a great day!
