Quilts #12-14 were completed before Christmas, but were commissioned as gifts so I couldn’t share until now. Quilt #13 was made for a ten-year-old boy with a flair for lime green aliens in VWs.Like the Purple Princess Quilt, this Alien quilt is based on the triangle pattern with a modified edge.
I also embroidered the recipient’s name on the quilt top, but have blurred it here for privacy.
The back is pieced with green chevron fabric, and leftover triangles from the top fabric.
I quilted the whole thing on the diagonal, a quarter-inch on either side of the seams, which resulted in a nice diamond pattern.
I was so unsure of this pattern when I started. I love the mix of prints, but once I got all the fabric cut and laid out I felt it was too busy. I so wanted to mix in a good solid to break it up, but restrained myself. Happily, once the quilt was completed, the “busy-ness” of it really grew on me, and I am pleased with the end product. It’s a perfect tween boy quilt.
This makes 14 quilts blogged and 12 to go. We’re getting there! Happy Quilting!
