Weston's quilt - half square triangles




This is Weston's quilt. He really wanted bright colors and triangles, so this is what we came up with.


This quilt is full of American Jane (Happy Campers, Wee Play, Recess) and Katie Jump Rope, with a little bit of Amy Butler and Lush thrown in. The backing is from an Ikea duvet cover, and the binding is Lush woodgrain.


It is slightly narrower than a typical twin sized quilt. I made it that way so that it would comfortably fit the boys' bunkbeds without hanging over the edges too much.


And Weston really loves it. :)

Great job - and it looks like he loves it,and enjoyed the photo shoot! I was just getting ready to put some KJR with American Jane - they do go perfectly together.
