Quilts for brothers (2)

Here's the second quilt I made for the boys: another strip quilt, this time with 60° triangles.
Once I had all those triangles cut and sorted, I pondered about the layout. On the left you can see monochromatic spiderwebs, on the right I layed out multichromatic spiderwebs.
I liked the multichromatic version better so I started sewing those webs together: I had to use tons of starch to get acceptable results.
Like the first quilt I made for the boys, I only quilted within the white strips. This time choosing a single, simple quilt design, because I thought things were already varied enough. So, simple steep loops, many "l"s was all I quilted in light grey Aurifil thread throughout those light parts of the spiderwebs:

The backing is the same on both quilts: black pindots on white. I used the same fabric for the binding.
Here's a close-up shot of the quilting:
And this is the quilt in it's entirety:
I hope that these two quilts will be loved by the boys, now while they are still small and also later when they grow up. I chose those contemporary colours and prints so they can still use them when they are teens or twens or "really old" (o;
Happy quilting!


  1. So schön! Die größeren Hexagons zwischen drin machen den Quilt viel interessanter. I love it ;)

  2. Both quilts are quite lovely.... i'm sure the boys will treasure them...

  3. Awesome quilt! Love the colors against the low volume.

  4. Wonderful quilts! Great color combinations too.


Thank you for stopping by and taking time to leave me a comment. You make my day :o)))
