Owen asked for a quilt last November once I had made one for Becky. I looked for a while and found the material, Summer Lodge by Bellalu. Then finding a guy quilt pattern was tough. I wanted one that let you see the material and see that it was a guy quilt.
I was so happy to find this quilt – http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/cutting-corners/2011/10/04/lost-block/
This quilt was much smaller than I wanted to make for Owen so I made 20 blocks rather than 12 in the pattern.
Be VERY careful the placement of your squares in the blocks. I picked out just about every blue material block. I am not one who likes to pick, but I didn’t have much choice.
Lots of fun and Owen uses it – so that makes it worth it.
