Finish it up Friday - Jake's Quilt

Here's the finished baby quilt for our fifth grandson, Jake, due in late August.  Its very boyish and I love how the colors play together very much!  Monsters, Inc. fabric, with coordinating colors of dark blue, lime green, beige and aqua blue, with white sashing, make for a very cute boy's quilt.

I machine quilted swirls in the inner white border, which work well with the theme.

Its a very easy and quick quilt.  Just choose your main theme fabric and 4 more coordinating fabrics.  I used the plaid for the backing, also.

Here are a couple of pictures of the work in progress on the quilt.

Another very pretty quilt! I used the same green circle fabric in my nephew's quilt. :))

Great way to incorporate the character prints. I have boys and struggle a bit to make quilts that they will like. This one looks great!

Another unique masterpiece for a special anticipated birth! You do a very individual quilt for each person you choose.

Thank you for sharing.
