Grandson's Big Boy Bed Quilt Progress

It's been a month since I posted about any progress - or lack thereof - on my grandson's big boy bed quilt. It stalled out when I was in Paducah, my machine was in the shop for awhile, then I had deadlines for donation quilts, and blah blah blah, you know how it goes.

But now the top is complete, a finished flimsy. Whoo-hoo!

Grandson CJ picked out the focus fabric - construction vehicles with Lego guys - and I selected the rest of the fabrics to go with it. 

The pattern is a scaled down variation of my Big Print Beauty pattern, this time with 9" pieces of the featured prints. I like this scale for these prints. The flimsy is 63 x 87". The size worked out well for CJ's bed with just the right amount of "drop" on the sides and bottom, allowing for some shrinkage in quilting and washing.

I have plenty of these fabrics left over to piece a backing, so that's my next step.

Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts


  1. Oh wow, it turned out perfectly and the blocks and borders are just the right sizes to show off the fun prints.

  2. CJ knew what he was doing when he selected those fabrics. He's going to love it!

  3. Great big boy bed quilt. Looks like an easy pattern that would be good for charity/comfort quilts.

  4. It looks great! Blue and yellow together are so happy and bright, and the fabrics are fun fun fun :)

  5. What a cute quilt. So fun! CJ has great taste in quilt fabrics, Gramma!
