Fabric and a plan, plus an awesome giveaway

Hello Folks,

I've got my 9yr the dinosaur fabric he wanted, and some great solids to go with it. So now I'm all set for making him a big boy quilt.

I thought I had a plan... but numerous pieces of paper and lots of time fiddling on EQ, and I'm still winging it. I have the dino fabrics cut up. The panel looking piece I got three 15x12" pieces out of, and the other dino fabrics I have a few different sized blocks, fussy cut out. So I'm going to add some of those solid strips to them, and maybe make some patches of solids (like 9patches maybe) and, um... throw it all together. LOL. 

I'll show you a few sneek peeks, but you'll have to wait till the It's for the Boys blog hop next month to see the finished top.

Which brings me to the awesome giveaway. Samm, over at Sew We Quilt, has come up with a great way to SAY what her blog is all about. In three simple words... SEW and SHOW! As many of you know, Samm has been having great blog hops all year long. There are many I don't join in, so if you want to catch them all, make sure you follow

Ok, back to sewing...

  1. Oh, I can not WAIT to see that quilt! Such fun fabrics! Our boy was Dino crazy at that age too, but I wasn't a quilter, although I did make him Dino jammies and a couple of shirts.

  2. Great big boy fabrics, Ms Dorian! Looking forward to seeing what you are sewing. Sometimes "winging it" makes the very best quilts ... :)

  3. I didn't sign up for the Boys Hop but I can't wait to see everything that people dream up! Blessings, Marlene
