Its finished! I’m so happy with how it turned out. I couldn’t decide how to quilt it (Thank you for all your great ideas!) but I finally decided to do straight quilting in a grid pattern around the seams. It looks more boy-ish, and really makes each square pop. It took awhile, but after quilting 124 straight lines I’m still really glad that I did it myself, on my machine. There’s a sense of pride that comes with finishing a quilt all by yourself from start to finish, I’m sure all of you that quilt yourself know what I’m talking about don’t you?
I pieced a strip through the back so this could be reversible when I want something simple. And so I can turn it over when needed, since this will be on my 2 year old’s bed…..yikes.
