Nature Green Quilt For a Boy

Because March is the month associated with green – I thought I would share with you the quilt I made for my oldest son.

His room is based on the outdoors because, he is totally an outdoor kid. It can be the dead of winter with a windchill of 20 below and he still goes outside!

I have grass painted along the bottom trim, a “tree top” curtain with a real branch bracket. Lately I have added a camouflage closet curtain and burlap shades. I hope to paint his corkboard a camouflage also.

I used all leftover fabric – except for the backing – for this quilt. I designed it myself also. It is machine quilted over the brown strips and tied in between. I like how the inside square echoes out. It almost looks like someone threw a rock in water and the water is  rippling out away from it.

This picture shows the smaller leaf blocks in the corners. The outside is randomly sized strips sewn together, again – just using up excess fabric.

He is my messy child so it is hard to get a picture of his room when it is clean, but we’ll see what happens! Hopefully I’ll be able to post pictures of the rest of his room sometime.
