Mitchell has been waiting patiently for over a year for me to make him a quilt. I couldn't come up with how I wanted to make it, so I kept putting it off. The other day he told me he wanted his quilt to be heavy, like the denim rag quilt I made when I first started quilting. Mitchell has Sensory Processing Disorder, so the deep pressure of weight is calming for him. That gave me the idea on what I wanted to do and I went to town....
Las year I bought two fat quarter bundles of Fossil Fern fabric at Craftsy when they went on sale at a deep discount. Yay!
Flying Geese anyone? =) I made them the super easy way using one seam. These went together super fast!! There are a lot of tutorials on how to make them on line, but the one I followed was the instructions from The Crafty Quilter. She also has a great chart for different sizes, as well. Yay for someone else doing the math for me!
Because I am using denim for this quilt, I made my seam allowances at ½ inch and pressed them open to minimize bulk.
Since this last picture, I have made the quilt bigger and personalized it for Mitchell, but I will share after I get the quilting done. That starts today!
Once thing about denim quilts, they are heavy and my shoulders were feeling it this morning. Ouch! Anything for my boy, right? =)
