A friend asked me in June if I would make a quilt for her to give to her new nephew. She told me that the baby's room is turquoise and milk chocolate brown and the dad's favorite hockey team is the Edmonton Oilers and plays lacrosse on the local team. I spent some time looking for just the right fabrics and pattern but I just couldn't find anything that spoke to me for this project.
I finally decided to make an I Spy quilt using the room colours as inspiration. I first saw the pattern for this quilt on Treadle Quilt's blog and followed the link she posted to this tutorial on Obsessively Stitching's blog. The only thing I changed was I added a couple of borders to incorporate the room colours. This is the "flimsy" top I finished this morning. It has 48 different novelty prints and measures 50"x 62 1/2".
