Finish it up Friday 4-12-2013

Yay! Its Friday!  This quilt is almost finished.  I hope that counts for a finish it up Friday post.  I only have to quilt the border and bind it.  It should be done this weekend.  Which is great since the baby its a gift for, was born Monday.  A month early.  Hey, I would have been on time if he would have stayed put.  :)  He is a cute little guy though.

I found the pattern for this quilt in Quiltmaker magazine.  All of the blocks were weird sizes though so I redrafted it so the blocks were all 2" finished blocks.  This way I could make all the blocks from 2 and 1/2" strips.  I use the easy angle ruler to make all my half square triangle blocks.

  2. What an adorable quilt for a new baby boy! Your comment about him being a month early and how the quilt would have been ready if he'd stayed put made me smile. Our middle daughter was born a month early at the beginning of December (many years ago) and we had nothing ready for her.

  4. He's really cute! I'd seen the pattern in Quiltmaker and didn't care for it, but now that I've seen yours I might go back and take another look.
