Stephen’s Quilt

So I changed my mind again on Stephen’s quilt! Not surprising if you know me :) I really wasn’t liking the idea of such a traditional quilt for a little boy and I found out the quilt needed to be larger so I didn’t want a super time consuming block. Instead I’ll use the block I made to make a little pillow!

I decided to make “Flocked Together” by Sarah Fielke from her book “Quilting From Little Things“. Its a feathered star block with lots of y-seams! (A little scary) The pattern was for a queen so I had to do some quilt math. Kind of difficult even for an engineering major!

Well I figured it out after making a block diagram! I drew the block to scale and then measured everything! I’m wondering if the Quilt Design Tool on Threadbias would do the math for me. Has anyone used this?

I’m loving the fabrics I chose for this quilt! All red, white and blue with a pinch of yellow and green thrown in! The fabrics include Sandy Gervais, Denyse Schmidt’s DSQuilts for JoAnn’s, Maude Ashbury (the awesome jumbo lobster print), a little Kona not sure of the color but I want to say Cobalt, Jack and Lulu “All Hands On Deck” (the little lobsters), and various other prints from JoAnn’s and my local quilt shop!

All the pieces are cut and I’m ready to get started!
