“Maine Milky Way” Quilt

I made this handsome quilt for my grandson for his 12th birthday.  (The kiddos are all growing up way too fast.)

This is Bonnie Hunter’s Narragansett Blues, which can be found in MORE ADVENTURES IN LEADERS AND ENDERS.

Remember a few years back when I spent the summer emptying the 2-inch square bin by making 4-patch blocks?  This is the FIFTH quilt made from those blocks.  And I still have more.  The big rectangles come straight from the blue 3 1/2-inch strip bin and from the 3 1/2 block bin.  So this quilt has been made with no fabric purchases but the binding and backing.

I quilted with a marine blue Signature thread that blends right into the fabric–and used a pantograph called “Scrumptous” by Lorien Quilting.
