For the Boys

The vintage sheet quilt tops I made a couple weeks are very feminine, and of course I need to make a baby boy quilt right now.  Once again, it is one of my husband’s requests.

Boy Woogies

I was hemming and hawing a bit about what to make and all about what fabric I wanted needed to buy for a boy’s quilt, yet my husband pointed out that I *should* have some plaids or something for a little boy quilt.  As soon as he said that, the lightbulb went on above my head!  I *do* have some plaids!  And they are flannel!  And they would be perfect!

Woogie 1

These fabrics were bought 8 years ago when my BFF wanted to make a quilt – her first quilt ever – for her baby.  I gave her the fabric she needed and kept the rest.  I figured this ragged quilt, or a true “woogie” as they’re known in my house, would be a perfect project for her.  From what I understand, her fabric has sat on her shelves just as mine has for these 8 years.

Woogie 2

I had enough fabric to make 2, so that’s exactly what I did.  I figured I could always find another recipient for the 2nd one, and of course my husband already has an idea to whom it will go!  (He sure is demanding of my craft!)

I still have some scraps sitting around, and think I’ll make a string quilt out of them.  I *think* I have enough for a top.  Since they are flannel scraps I won’t put them in my normal scrap bins — they really need to stay in their own project.

And my personal quilt testers once again approve of their comfort level:

The quilts measure about 36″x45″ each.
