I started Logan's lap quilt today. He will be 4 next week, so his lap is pretty small (good news for me because I don't have much time left). I used the same Historic Highway fabric that I used in his messenger bag. I wasn't going for a "theme" for his birthday; I just had so much of this fabric that I have to use it somehow. I actually purchased this fabric with a quilt in mind.
After a few minutes planning the thing and then several more minutes changing the plan in my head, I ended up with rows of Highway and solid squares in between. At the last minute, I decided to change some of the squares by cutting them on a diagonal and piecing different colors together. I like the colors; I'm just not sure I like how I put everything together.
But this is for a 4-year-old boy and he will probably love it. I do think it is very little boyish. I'm sure I will get used to the same design used over and over again; I just wanted this quilt to be simple, fun, and definitely cause excitement on the big day.
And, of course, I had a buddy tag along to help me with the photos . . .
