I absolutely love the top of this quilt. All of the blues and the pattern is very geometric and modern to me. The tutorial is from Melissa Cory - her coin quilt from Moda Bakeshop - which I then multiplied x's 4... and took an extra row off in the end.
This monster is about 90 x 100 - give or take a few inches. It didn't turn out as big as I hoped but with all the trouble I had sewing and quilting this beast, I'm glad it did not turn out bigger! My quilting leaves a bit to be desired... I wanted to do so much more with it but I had so many machine and human issues trying to fit this in my little domestic machine that I finally just went with a 1/4 inch border inside the strips and that was it. It turned out ok and I learned a lot and I'm sure my dad will love it inspite of all its flaws. You live and you learn I suppose... even tho its hard to let go and not worry about all the details :)
Happy Belated Father's Day Daddyman! You will already have this lovely monster on your bed by the time you are reading this :)
