    Default Same pattern but looks are entirely different

    Last week, I posted a picture -- click on the link below if you want to compare them-- of a charity lattice quilt for a little girl. I'd like to make a boy's quilt for every girl's I turn in, but unfortunately, I am usually given florals. But this pattern called to me, and had to make this for a boy. I love the floral one, but thought that a solid lattice for a boy would work better. In the photo, right lower side, the block looks pink, but it really is a red background with white stars.

    And still another scrappy

    Thanks for looking.

    Yes, I think this looks great for a boy. I went and looked at the girly one too and love the fabrics in that. Great work.

    I think it looks great for a boy, too! The girly one is very nice also.

    Great quilt for a boy. Part of why it looks so different is the lattice being all one color, instead of scrappy in the girl's quilt. Both are lovely!
