Fat Quarter Boy’s Toys Quilt

Some materials for this quilt were provided to me by OnlineFabricStore.net.  They are a fabulous company to work with, and as always, all opinions are 100% my own!

Before sharing my finished Fat Quarter Boy’s Toy Quilt, I wanted to take a moment to once again thank my friends at OnlineFabricStore.net for so generously sponsoring my quilt along endeavors.  I had a blast working with them and their fabulous products.

For a recap of my quilting experience, you can check out my previous posts:

Week One: Gathering Materials

Week Two: Cutting the Fabric

Week Three: Piecing the Quilt

Week Four: The Quilt Sandwich

Week Five: Binding the Quilt

I’m just going to cut right to the chase.  Here’s the finished product…my very first quilt!

I’m in love with it!  I obviously started the quilt before Henry was born.  I told myself that this quilt would be for the baby, but at the time I didn’t know whether we’d have a boy or a girl.

So, in case I didn’t have a girl, I chose boy-ish fabric.  That way, if Henry did turn out to be a girl then the quilt could go to big brother.  Lucky for me, I’ve got two sweet boys and my littlest now has his very own Boys Toys Quilt!

Clearly, he’s a fan!

Thank you all for sticking with me on my quilting journey.  I had a blast and already have plans to make a couple more as Christmas gifts.  If you’re interested in starting your first or even your fiftieth quilt, I highly recommend this pattern.  It was so fun to put together, and a super easy first quilt to tackle for all you beginners out there!

    LOVE it! I’m still only halfway done with mine since my sewing machine broke and it took me awhile to replace it, but now I’m seriously doubting my decision to use solids for the sashing. Those grey dots look amazing! You did a fabulous job!

    To be honest, I’m not a huge quilt person. However, your fabric choices and the more modern feel of this quilt may just be changing my mind. Yup – It did. I love it. Just pinned!

      I’m totally not a quilt person either, trust me! BUT, I think it just goes to show that if you find the right pattern and the right fabrics, quilts can be so awesome!

    You did an amazing job! Up to this point I’ve only ever made rag quilts. I think this might be my first “real” quilt! Thanks for sharing!
