Today I gave Big D his quilt, almost a year after it was finished. Big D is one of my little grandsons, and it was time for the boy to have a big-bed quilt. I wrote about making the quilt here and here.

Big D shares a bedroom with two older brothers, who already had big-bed quilts. They make a handsome trio — of boys and quilts!

P’s Quilt. Bear’s Paw pattern. Finished in 2009. Photo is a little distorted.

C’s Quilt. Strip quilt with “chunky churndash” block set on point. Finished in 2009. Photo is a little distorted.

I think it is interesting that the three use three different formats: medallion, block quilt, and strip quilt. They are as distinct as the boys are.

    As I look at it my eye is drawn to the 4 corner ‘roses’ & replicated one in the very center. Reminds me of the corner baseballs in my quilt. I love to study your quilts & discover the patterns, colors, & repetitions!

      The two older quilts were pretty ambitious for me at the time I made them. I’m still really proud of them, and I’m glad the new one fits in so well. Thanks.

    They do make a great set. I like them all — truly, I couldn’t pick a favorite. Each has its own good qualities. As you say, that’s just like the boys.
