“Crossed Kayaks” quilt
This cutie baby quilt got mailed recently.
The 12 1/2 inch foundation pieced blocks are from a book by Lynn Goldsworthy, THE ULTIMATE QUILT BLOCK COLLECTION. She actually called this version a “Bento Box” pattern, but I’ve seen in other places a similar pattern called “Crossed Kayaks.” Likely that pattern did not have the colored square beneath the kayaks.
The fabrics are from a collection by Riley Blake called “Crayola.” I pulled from my stash to add more solids. I bought this collection in Coastal Quilters’ fund-raiser auction last November. I’ve always LOVED crayons. As a child, nothing much was more fun than getting a new box of crayons–each with their tips still pointy and new. That was probably the first realization that I loved the whole range of colors. This suite of fabrics also comes in girly pinks.
The secondary patterns are neat in this quilt. The center makes an Octagon.
Here’s the back. I stole from the backing fabric to get the front border, so pieced to fill in. That’s always fun.
