Jackson Quilt

My first custom quilt. Made for a friend of mine who is expecting a little boy any day now. She requested and approved these colors and then picked a quilt style that she liked and I started designing.

I ended up with 3 or 4 different blocks to give the quilt some variety with the squares.

I used some of the left over scraps to spell out his name on the back. I used the prints for his name then used the solids for the backing itself to showcase both the quilting and allowing his name to stick out.

I really do love how his name turned out and plan to use this on my future quilts.

I also added one of my new labels to the back.

I made it big enough that the little guy can use it for several years. Really love how this turned out.

I love it too! Such great colours for a boy and his name on the back is a very sweet touch.
