An old, old, old friend and his wife had a baby boy recently. What's a quilter to do, but make a quilt. I did a little research, I asked Grandpa, and found out the nursery was turquoise and lime with brown. I can work with those colors.
I fell in love with a quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew, Scrappy Summer. I've been thinking about making a king sized version in blues for my bedroom and thought I'd test how the it looked without a lot of color contrast.
I went through my stash and pulled the turquoise and greens that seemed more masculine. No flowers, though some seed pods found their way in. I cut the bigger squares at 5 inches and the smaller ones at 2.75. I arranged them in a 10x10 grid and sewed it together. I think cutting took longer than sewing.
