Before you ask, yes the MSU quilt top is done. :)
(I'll get a photo when I can get it all in.)
That means I can start something new, right?
And I was inspired by the quilt in this post.
(Before I knew about the quilts for boys.)
So I dug through my fabrics with a color scheme in mind. And I drafted the block as a paper pieced project because I'd like those skinny pieces to all be the same size.
Yep, with my OLD QuiltPro, I can do these paper pieced blocks and they all come out the same size. It may be old, but it still works well for my purposes. (And I understand the software is still out there - newer versions, of course.)
(No they didn't pay me to say that!)
The celestial print you see peeking in there will be the back.
And I sewed a few just to get me going...
30 more blocks to go!
And green borders.
So what do you think...will a teenage boy like this?
(But I may have to raid my mom's stash for more grey...)
