I really wanted to do a cool, boyish quilt for my son. I wanted something that wasn't babyish so that it could appeal to him as he got older. In the back of my mind, I thought, I'd love to make a blanket that he'd even feel comfortable taking to college with him. I don't know if that will happen, but this is what I came up with. I love the blue-brown color scheme. I flipped through a few different quilting books to get an idea HOW to make a quilt and to get some design ideas and then came up with this. It's perfect for his toddler-sized bed right now and I think it'll still be big enough to cover him in a twin.
Here's the back. I like how my son uses the blue stripe as a road for his car!
