It’s a March Trifecta!

Well, March is over, but I have one more finished quilt to show off:

This is Cluck Cluck Sew’s Pow-Wow Crib Quilt made from a kit purchased here.  I have loved this pattern from afar for a long time, and when the kit version went on sale I couldn’t resist, even though I didn’t know who would receive the finished product.  Our neighbors are such sweet people and so patient.  Not only do they share a wall with our noisy family, but he also works for Handsome.  Nothing like living 6ft. from your boss!  They are having their second baby next month – a boy – and it seemed like a baby quilt was in order.

The original kit made a throw size, and I cut out enough fabric to make all of those blocks so I could use some on the back side.  I added in a plaid shirting print I have had in my stash for about 5 years, and I really like how it works with the rest of the quilt.  I think it adds to the boyishness, too.  This was a great pattern, and really fun to make in a weekend from start to finish including straight line quilting on my machine.  Now it’s all washed, dried and crinkly soft, waiting to be gifted.  What?  I’m done with a project ahead of time?  Impossible!

I still have blocks left over and the pattern includes a scrap saver technique that leaves you with loads of leftover half-square triangles, too.  I’ll have to find a way to use those up in a future project.

One of my favorite bits is the one camo chevron on the back, since this is for a Navy baby!
