Description

This is the second quilt I started and the first one I finsihed.  I saw a similar pattern in the book “Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! – the Complete Guide to Quiltmaking”.  I made this for my son who is all into the Army stuff.

It is a twin size quilt with black border and black backing.  I used the camo print as my focus fabic.  My intent was to do all the larger blocks in camo, but I did not purchase enough in the beginning.  When I returned to the store, hunting season was over and camo was on where to be found.  I put the quilt on hold until the summer; thinking that they would get more in right before the next hunting season.  This was my first experience with “new fabrics each season”!  I never saw this exact camo again.  I had to improvise and added in the black, brown and green blocks.

I still had not heard of a walking foot at this point.  I used straight stitching with my regular presser foot.  I did stitch-in-the-ditch and eco quilting around the edge.

A few months later, we decorated my son’s room based on the quilt.  My mother and I painted the camo pattern on two of his walls and painted the other two solid green.  Black trim finished it off.  I brought the quilt into Lowe’s and they matched the paint to it perfectly.  His toys are in ammo cans and exposive boxes; he uses a foot locker for larger items and a night stand; his furniture is black and camo net is hung from the wall and curtain rod.
Other than a few seams that came apart due to seams that were too small, the quilt has held together great.  I hope it is something he has with him for many years to come.

This is perfect for my son in law, might have to steal your idea. I love the four patch but I am not going to paint his room to match the quilt. He is on his own on that one. lol
