A Big Boy Bed Quilt An August OMG
Our sweet boy, Dominic, will be three (3!!!) in the first week of September. Boy how time flies – it seems it was just yesterday he was stealing my heart in the hospital by grasping my finger. The pattern, I Love Dirt, was picked up in 2018 and the Grunge-ish backing was acquired over time as well. This big boy bed quilt has been in the works just about since his birth. The month, all those thoughts will compile into one big boy finished quilt for him!
Big Appliqué of Trucks
This project has landed a few times on the weekly To-Do listings. Since there is a lot of appliqué involved in each of the 15 blocks, that took about two weeks. Here, you can see the reverse side of a dump truck (my favorite block) along with one of the many wheels under the needle.
Big Boy Borders
It didn’t take long before we had the quilt top complete with 15 different blocks plus cornerstones and sashing. We took this photo and then wondered if borders might be needed?
Yes, indeed. They will finish off the piece quite nicely and add just a bit more to the width and length.
A Big Boy Quilt OMG
This month this quilt will be our focus and our August OMG project. We will add the borders, layer, quilt, and add a binding to complete the big boy bed quilt for our sweet boy. I will be linking this up on Patty’s Elm Street Quilts linky party that opened on the first.
