Travis’s Quilt

I’ve been working on this project since about May. It is the first quilt I have ever attempted. I decided that Travis (2 years old) needed a quilt for his bedroom from his mommy. He has a queen-size bed. I wanted it reversible for different decor options as he
grows older. I made the design up myself and I’m pretty pleased with the results. Here … let me show you …


This is what the room looked like before …

This is the back of the quilt. The design doesn’t go with this particular decor but it’s an option for the future.

And here is the top view. Don’t you love how the border matches the curtains? I found it while on vacation and only went by memory as to the colour of the crutains. I think I did a pretty fine job with the match, if I do say so myself!
Now I need to add a more masculine bed skirt (is that an oxymoron?) and get him some darker stained furniture that will match the headboard. Baby steps. First I have another quilt to finish and it has a November deadline!

  1. Nicely done! You're a braver woman than I. I have tackled a multitude of crafts, but I've always turned left at the doorway that would lead to quilting. I do admire your design work. Thank you for sharing your charming project. Cherry Kay
