    Finished the 3 quilt tops

    A customer asked me to mke 3 quilts, as much alike as I could, for her 3 grandsons for Christmas. She liked this pattern but wanted it throw size, so I had o resize everything down to 59%, as the pattern was queen size. I still have to quilt and bind them, but I thought they came out cute. My delima now is the quilting pattern and what color thread????? Any thoughs from this fantastic QB?

    They are great, I have the pattern in stash for the future. I would bind them in 3 different colors, so they would be individualized but other than that u r on you own, but please show when you finish. Love them.

    It's a wonderful quilt and your more homespun fabrics are great in it.

    Great job! As far as quilting, I am picturing these boys as being still rather young? Say 10yrs or so? If that is the case, I think I would go for an all over stipple in and around all the applique bits. As far as thread goes, what about a variegated in the same tones as the top?

    You did a good job. So cute! Bet it would look good if you outlined it. I agree I would put different color binding 's. Love it.

    Yes, I think that's the way to go. I, too, can't wait to see them all done, too.

    I would go with varigated thread and heavy quilting (because they will be washed a lot). I would also put the binding on by machine. You can stipple, or go around the applique, or use loop-de-loops, etc. The quilts are so cute! The kids will love them!

    I agree that a different binding for each would work as well as an all-over stipple (avoiding the applique). Great holiday quilts. Thanks for sharing. Let us see them once they're bound.

    I made this quilt in king size. It is a wonderful pattern, with so many manly things; it will grow with the boys.

    The grandmother only wanted throw sized quilts, so I had to refigure everything and downsized it all to about 59%. The pattern was a queen size quilt. Glad I have a printer/scanner that will resize all the applique' patterns, and of course refigure ALL the blocks as well.
