B for Boy or Blue

This is another late post. 
I made this quilt last  September for my MIL's friend. She wanted something BLUE for her grandson. And you know there are a whole lot of shades of blues.

 See what I mean???

She simply said "I want something blue for my Grandson, he's 13 years old" . hmmm...As usual, deciding the block and pattern arrangements is the most difficult part for me. I made few fabric selections and few test blocks, laid them on the floor, clicking endless pictures. Picking another set of blues, cutting and repeating until I get that "AHA" feeling.

I saved you from viewing my "WIP" photos, and here what I came up with:

I wanted something simple that has a BLUE look about it. Using a square in square block, I put owl prints in the middle and blue and yellows oval dotted prints too. 



 of course a blue dots for the back! Lucky I found this still in stock in my fave fabric shop!


and as usual, decorative quilting ^^

It was a rush work, since she's leaving for the US and will take the quilt with her. I sent her just few days before she left, and she was very thrilled and placed another order, this time it's PINK. Now, that the color that I love ^_^. 

Until then,
Happy Sewing
