I am really thrilled to finish this quilt for little Rex! His momma wanted a good sized quilt that he can play with and grow with. She wanted mostly navy, grey and white with pops of orange. She picked out some awesome fabrics and I immediately thought of this pattern that I've had in my sewing room for a year or so and I have to say, it came together just as I had imagined! Don't you love it when that happens.
Pattern: Russian Rubix by April Rosenthal (love her patterns!)
Fabrics : Various Navy and Orange Prints
Thread - Aurifil 50wt for piecing, Superior monofil for quilting
This binding in the orange bias strip from Happy Go Lucky was a perfect finish, I think.
Notice we used lots of crowns for "Rex!"
I can't wait to give this to Rex's mom on Monday. I'll bask in having a completed project this weekend before jumping into my next one!
