The quilt for a mountain boy...

I mentioned in my previous post the project Mountain Baby Blankets. I started on the first quilt last night. I pulled out my scrap basket and took out all strips with some scrappy log cabin blocks in mind. I found the fabric I bought about a year ago just because I loved the vintage feel of it. It is the dark blue one with images of little boy playing, little boy with a dad. Suddenly, a new, a bit different idea came and I just sat down and started sewing away. This is what I came up with so far. I am liking it a lot.











I think this little project will be done before I decide what to do with my other quilt. It would also be a perfect size for my free motion quilting practice.
