Boy/Girl Crayon Quilt

Similar, but not the same.

Now I have this song stuck in my head.  It was in Pretty in Pink ... I loved the soundtrack from that movie.   Heck, I loved the whole movie, almost as much as I loved Say Anything.  I loved her car.  I wanted to be the Annie Potts character and own a really cool record store and shoot people with a staple gun.  I probably still have the soundtrack on a cassette somewhere (if you don't remember cassettes, well, I really don't need to know ... because I remember when we had 8-tracks in the car ... and then we got really modern and had a converter for the 8-track player that would play cassettes.  Those were the days.).

Well, now that I've taken my little trip down memory lane and have a tune in my head it's time to get back to the quilt.

As I was saying, this one is similar to this, but not the same as this one doesn't have pink or purple in it but does have yellow blocks.  I wanted to make one that would work well for a girl, and one that would be great for a boy.

The backing fabric is from Ikea and the binding is an Amy Schimler Creatures and Critters Lizard/Chameleon print in blue.

The construction of this quilt is the same as the first one, with the quilting done the same as well.

These quilts are high on my favorites list.  I know I say that a lot, but I mean it this time.  Really.

  3. This is one INCREDIBLE quilt. The colors, the simplicity, the scraps the 'I can do it on my machine' quilting. This quilt is just what I needed to attack my fabric collection and have fun doing it. Did I mention I love this quilt?!
