A Finished Flimsy: Heart Builders Top #1

For my Heart Builders top, Plan B worked out quilt well, I think. The focus fabric was too inspiring to just cut it up, so I made blocks to coordinate with it and set them in a strippy setting reminiscent of a western blanket.

This top turned out at 48" x 64", just right for an older boy. Heart Builders suggested a size of about 45 " x 60", give or take a little. I figured for an older boy, a few extra inches wouldn't hurt. 

I had enough of the blue background left that I was able to cut and prep binding for this quilt. Not required by Heart Builders, but it can only help, right?

Heart Builders sent fabric in June and requested the top at the end of July. They particularly need tops for older boys, masculine but not babyish. I have a plan for the other fabrics they sent so I'll make another masculine top in July and get them both sent out on time. Two for a good cause. I get to enjoy designing and piecing them, and I don't have to worry about quilting them.  Win!!

  1. You did a fantastic job with the design! Your design complements the focus fabric perfectly.

  2. It turned out really nicely, and it's awesome that you can send off binding as well.

  3. You implemented your plan flawlessly. It's a great guy quilt. It does look just like one of those western woven blankets.

  4. Super quilt top! Some young man will really appreciate it :)

  5. You did a great job coming up with a plan for the focal fabric. It does look like a blanket print.
