Owls for Jett

16 Apr

This quilt was made for the son of my wonderful wedding photographer, Nathan Walker. Him and his wife saw some of my quilts and asked if I would make one for their almost 2 year old son and I was happy to do it! Then then told me they wanted twin-sized. Eeeekk! I had second thoughts…actually not really, it was the kick in the pants I needed to try a bigger project.

We went through some fabric and decided on the main fabric and design together. Once again this is a variation on a pattern from Oh, Fransson! I have made this pattern many times, from simple modern baby quilts, because I love the pattern and apparently so does everyone else. So taking Elizabeth Hartman’s basic block I constructed a much larger quilt and improvised the back.

Now that the quilt is safe and sound with its new owners here is how it turned out.

Front:

For Jett (5 of 11)

Back:

For Jett (4 of 11)

Quilting (Done by my favourite long-arm quilter):

Binding and new label:

I really love the way this one turned out and I love the Aviary 2 Wood Grain binding!

I hope they love it too.

Later this weekend I will post about the process of making the quilt.  Complete with rudimentary drawings!
