My son, Riley, just had a birthday.....he's had 36 of them!
(I didn't think I had any children that old.....mercy sakes)!
He needed a new quilt - it had been a while since I made him one.
I had this fat quarter pack of "Porch Swing" fabrics - remember them?
When I pulled them out I fell in love with them all over again.
I simply squared each fat 1/4 up then cut them into 4 quadrants - 8 1/2" x 10 1/2".
I got hundreds of them!
I sewed them all together - 11 rows by 11 rows - to make a queen size.
Brown dot Minky for the backing - he needed a warm snuggly quilt - it gets cold in Pennsylvania where he lives.
I quilted an all-over large meander with swirls plopped in every so often.
Scrappy binding - always a favorite!
I had some yardage so I made 2 pillow cases to match.
I think it was the best birthday gift ever!
He thought so, too - called the day it arrived to say, "thanks, mom".
Gosh - I love this boy!
Don't you just want to curl up in that chocolaty minky?
