Roadway Quilt

Posted by Kristin Rauch in Craftiness | family | home | luke | Quilting | Thrifted | vintage

Most of the quilts I make end up being gifts. But I have made several that hang around our house. A couple in the living room, one of the foot of our bed for our feet, and one for Luke’s crib. Which I realize after typing that is only 4 actual quilts in our house that I have made. I have gifted over twice as many as I have kept. Hmm.. I guess that’s good. ;)

But anyway…. when we are in the living room cuddling, or “pretend” napping Luke gives us each our own quilt. Since there are three of us it doesn’t always work out. ;) So I made Luke a patchwork quilt for the living room.

 

I used mainly Lotta Jansdotter’s Bella Line. Not all the prints, but most. I added in a couple Kona solids.  Don’t hold me too these colors, but I think they are Kona, Buttercup, Carribean, and Coal, and bound in Ash. I can’t remember specifically if these are the colors, but I think so. ;)

I cut 6.5″ squares and used 1/4″ seams as usual for a final measurement of 4′ x 5′.

 

For the back I used a polka dot sheet I used and added some roads onto the back for Luke to play on. Isn’t that such a great idea? Lindsey from That’s what Lindsey said did this on the back of one of her quilts for her son and should it to me via Instagram. So awesome! :)

I quilted it with zig zags using the points of the squares as my guide. Super fast and simple especially on a smaller quilt.

He like’s it! :)

 

This is the first quilt I have made that is purely squares in a random layout. It was super fast and I finished this in two short night sessions and one naptime. I need to make more simple quilts. :)

 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
