It was a mixture of blends and batiks. If I were to make it again, I would not mix the batiks with cotton cloth.. All were name brand good fabrics. There is just a bit more "give" and stretch to the cotton over the batiks. I'm not a expert or a perfectionist. But my children, nieces, nephews all love the quilts I make. Especially any Mom and baby. They look forward to the present from Aunt Sharon at a shower.

Love the wonderful colors in your son's quilt!
Are you making a Tumbling Blocks? Mine is from Marci Baker " Not your grandmother's tumbling blocks". It is made from strips that are built of 60degree cuts. You really need her pattern to know what you are doing unless yo might have lots of experience. My copy is just the one pattern but I have also seen it in a hardcover or soft cover book. Wishes for you to get it done on time. My lqs owner machine quilted mine..

I love your quilt. It actually looks to be tumbling.

This is large enough to nicely cover a queen bed top with a small amount over the sides.
You can make it as big as you want easily by just adding length to the strips or add more strips.

I found this through search engine (google, etc) It has several of her patterns TB, Stars, flower garden and more. I found the book I purchased that had just the TB on Amazon.com for a sky rocketed price But check several. I certainly would go to a book with colored pictures. Good luck.
