One of my dear friends from college, Chad, and his beautiful wife, Jil, just welcomed a handsome baby boy into their family. In honor of his arrival I just had to make…(what else?)….a quilt! Chad is a very accomplished sequential artist (check out his crazy drawing skills on his blog here) so I wanted to do something with a fun, comic-esque feel to it. After toying with some different ideas (super hero cape quilt?) I found this incredibly fun outer space patterned fabric and fell in love. Isn’t it just the best for a little boy?! Space ships, rockets, robots and planets. What could be more perfect?
These staggered strips make me think of take off. Into the great unknown!
And here’s the back. I tried something new with the curly cue quilting pattern on the large block and absolutely love how it turned out. Gives it a masculine vibe.
(What a great helper the Hubs is. Check out that righteous Chaco tan!)
I think it turned out pretty great. Hopefully it will bring joy to baby boy for years to come!
B tested it out and gave it his official seal of approval.

And I really can’t remember what the solids are. I gotta get better at writing this stuff down.
