Dorm room quilt


My middle son Paul just went off to college last month.  He is a Freshman at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore.  He gets his creativity from me!  He is an amazing photographer and received a Presidential Scholarship to attend.  He wanted a quilt with a brown and green theme.  Here is the quilt I made for him.  Of course, I couldn't resist making a matching pillow.   The pattern was easy.  It is a border around every other square.  The big squares are cut 9.5" x 9.5", the inside squares are cut 7.5" x 7.5" and the brown border that goes around all four sides of the smaller squares were cut as a 1.5" strip.  This quilt is laptop size and when completed turned out to be 36 squares (6 squares wide x 6 squares length) = 54" square....Don't forget to make a few more squares for a throw pillow!

It is a great quilt indeed. Good luck to your son as he starts a new part of life.

I wanted to say thanks for passing by my blog (I can't email you yet as you're set to no-reply, so here I am).. it was an amazing and yet strange day indeed and it certainly did make the news all over.
