Henry's big boy quilt thus far...

Henry's quilt is coming along quite nicely. In fact, I'm really quite pleased with the way it's turning out! The daddy & grandpa dress shirts combined with the solids are the perfect match, I think. I currently have 24 (16") blocks completed and think I need to make at least 11 more for a total of 35. I was going to cut each block into quarters and then sew them back together to get a very modern, eclectic look (as seen in this tutorial), but I think I like the blocks the way they are, so I plan on leaving them at this point. (Plus, it saves me a whole lot of extra work :)

I'm really enjoying this project so far. It's very fun for me to sew something so special and sentimental. I think I may end up making each of my kids a dress shirt quilt!



**I didn't put much thought into the way I placed the blocks, I just wanted to get a sense of what they would look like all together. So the completed quilt will most likely be arranged differently.
