It’s the first day of school ’round these parts. Just in time to be an official third-grader, my son got his new quilt.
Because, really, do you know many third-graders who don’t play Minecraft?
The Creeper quilt was incredibly easy to make, of course. Four shades of green and a bit of black, and then it’s just straight patchwork. It took me way longer to finish than it should have, though, simply because I just wasn’t that into it.
I said to my husband that it’s not exactly my favorite quilt I’ve ever made, but he was quite right when he replied “yeah, but it’s not for you, is it?” Well, no. It’s for my boy, and he liked it and got exactly what he asked for, so the project was a success.
I quilted it very simply, just straight lines on one side of each seam. I might normally quilt on both sides of each seam, but this time I went a little more minimalist (also because I’m lazy and because some of my corners don’t match up very well and I didn’t want to draw more attention to that… BUT NO REALLY IT’S A DESIGN CHOICE).
And the binding is three different solid greens that I had in my stash, easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.
And now it’s time to crack down on his little sister’s “blue and purple triangles” quilt, which she WILL NOT LET ME FORGET MOM IS IT DONE YET WHAT ABOUT NOW?
