Ages ago I asked my son if he would like me to make him a quilt. He answered correctly by saying that he would.....he probably would have got one anyway even if his answer was no!
We chose the fabrics and I showed him lots of pictures of all different styles of quilt but he insisted that he just wanted squares. Well I couldn't just make a squares quilt for him could I? So I sugessted throwing some rectangles in too and he agreed. I used the Magic Numbers block tutorial by sew katy did, but I changed the sizes and added in rectangles.
So here it is in all it's unquilted glory, well nearly as some of it is draped over the washing line!
I must admit I finished the top a few weeks ago and the poor boy has been asking when his quilt will be finished. When his mother pulls her finger out and quilts the thing, that's when!
Just in case those colours aren't girly enough for some of you here's a picture of the last flush of roses from my garden. They smell wonderful in the room. I didn't expect to see any more blooms now autumn's here.
