My last finish for 2013 led straight to my first finish for 2014. Generally, my boys (there are three of them) don't pay much attention to the quilts I make. But when I shared with my youngest son that this quilt
would be a gift to my sister-in-law, he had a few things to say about that. "You can't give this quilt away. I love this quilt!" Wow. I was shocked. He'd never noticed before. I told him that if he liked that quilt that much, I would make him a quilt next. However, it would not be the exact quilt, but one that had all the things he liked about this one. I really don't like to make the same quilt twice. There's usually enough repetition in one to last.
He and I sat down and went through all the quilts on my Pinterest page to find a good design. The only rule was that his quilt had to come from fabric that I already had on hand. The thing he liked most about the original quilt was the colors. Once we found a pattern, we pulled what he wanted to use from my stash. The pattern can be found here.
The back is done in wide stripes.
