My house turns into a real mess when I pull fabrics for new projects. I like to pull as many as I think I like for what I have in mind --- I pull WAY too many. And then, when I start cutting I start weeding out the ones I like.
I made this quilt for a friend who has a son who needs a warm heavy blanket for the Maine winters. She wanted a old looking quilt but one that also was a boy quilt.
My friend also wanted a "girl" quilt - I have an idea to put bright green/pink or purple circles in some of those squares but - I had to send a note to mamma to see about going that wild.
Here are the pieces of the "boy quilt" in a pile -
