Connor's quilt

For Christmas, I finally made both my kiddos large (twin sized) bed quilts.  I’ve been really excited about this quilt.  I think it’s by far my most favorite quilt I’ve ever made.  On the front side it’s the Houndstooth quilt by V and Co. made from KONA coal and grass green.  I love the striking combo.

And on the back . . . .

Another quilt.  This is Simply Woven, a free tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop.  I love the finished look.  For this side I used KONA cyan, lagoon, medium gray, robin egg, canary and chartreuse.

Because of the large amount of piecing (on both sides), the quilt is quite heavy.  I chose to quilt simple diagonal lines approx 4″ apart following the Houndstooth design on the front.  Since it’s a bed quilt, I wanted the quilting nice and loose so it didn’t make the quilt too stiff.

I’m sure you might be wondering: why make a double sided quilt? Well, I love my son, but when he makes his bed, he doesn’t bother to put the top side of the quilt up, so, now I won’t care which side is up, because both sides are beautiful.  Connor LOVED his quilt – it was a total surprise because he hadn’t seen me working on it at all.
