Riley Blake All Star 2 Boy's Quilt...done!

Finally! I have another finished quilt! This one only took me a year... I had it all sewn together a year ago, but never got around to finishing it- stitching and binding. Babies take a lot of time you know- and this one took a lot of mine..so his quilt had to wait. {Yep I chose my babies and my kids and my family over maintaining a blog... or finishing a quilt..}

 For this quilt I used the Road Trip Tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew.  I used an all over swirly machine quilting stitch. It had been a while since I had made a quilt- so it isn't perfect. What I love about these quilts, is that the more you wash it, the softer it gets, and the less your mistakes matter.
 Originally I planned to decorate the nursery using these fabrics. But that nursery decorating thing has not really happened. Plus...I have a new idea now...and who knows- by the time I get it done- the boys might not need a nursery anymore. ha ha.

I added a few different fabrics- scraps that I had that matched- but most of the fabrics are from Riley Blake All Star 2 by My Mind's Eye.  I don't know if you can get this fabric anymore- since I started this quilt last year- but you might find it in some shops on etsy. The quilt is about 60 by 45 inches.
And here it is hung up in the room-- for now.

Thanks for reading! {I had a goal to finish 5 quilts this summer...ones that are already started...so we'll see if I get time to finish any more....}For more quilt inspiration check out my quilt love  board.
