I have been sewing like a mad woman lately and my son seems to be very interested in what I am creating. Yesterday he asked me if I would make his blanket. The fabric has been stashed for a couple of months now and it’s about time I put it all together. I made a fun afternoon activity out of it by having him help me lay all of the squares out. The rules were simple – no two of the same square can touch.
While we were laying out the squares, Hunter reminded me every single time (literally) I placed a new square that “no two of the same can touch Mommy”. He did a really great job. In fact, he placed most of the squares.
When we were all finished, he wanted to “test” out his new blanket:
Now, I just have to piece it all together…
Outer Space Quilt specs:
Since this is my very first quilt, I am making it super simple. Each square is 8 inches by 8 inches. The quilt is 8 squares wide and 12 squares tall. According to my calculations, this should fit Hunter’s twin bed perfectly.
