A Quilt for Benjamin!

A Quilt for Benjamin!

It is so very refreshing to be able to work on Wedding and Baby Quilts!! I love happy occasions!

A Quilt for Benjamin was made for my cousin Mary’s baby. He got it a little late (admittedly, after his first birthday…..) but there were a few logistical issues there, not necessarily all my fault. lol. This was made using the Creative Grids 2 Peaks in 1 Triangle Quilt Ruler and fabric leftover from a previous quilt for a sister and a cousin. If you want to see those quilts, have no fear! You can check them out here!

This was simply 60 degree triangles. As the other quilts were I Spy Quilts, I made this one an I Spy, as well. As Benji grows up, he’ll get to enjoy the searching!

Alright, let’s see it!

I also pieced the back in this cut Orange and Blue fabric. I really liked the way it came out. Of course, I can’t find a picture of it….
