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!
