    Two new quilts for boys

    I made one like the top one for a little girl earlier in the week, and this one is for a boy. I like the idea of the border matching the lattice, instead of the way I did the other one.

    I found this panel for $1.50 and couldn't resist the price. Had to find something in the stash that sort of matched, didn't want to have to buy fabric for it. The side squares of the tan were put there because I didn't have enough of the forest green! This border fabric looks black but isn't, just a very dark forest green.

    great quilts, and i love how you made do with the borders on the duck quilt.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I like both and what an inspiration on how to use panels and different scrappy fabric blocks.
    thanks!

    Your quilts are very nice. I also like the lattice matching the border. It just gives a coordinating look. It makes a sharp quilt.

    The lattice and matching border really make that quilt! Good way to use that duck panel. I admire the way you make things from your stash work together. :-)
