This a another quilt I made for the projects on-going through the Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild. It's for a teenage boy. The quilt is the perfect size for a bunk bed. It's just wide enough to hang over the mattress on each side and covers the bedding area on top of the bed.
I used a pattern called "Fractal" in the book, Quilt Lab, The Creative Side of Science, by Alexandra Winston. I did change a couple of things in the pattern. The quilt pattern is for a 60 x 60 inch quilt. I added another row of 10 inch blocks at the bottom to make it a bed quilt. And I used a solid piece of fabric (the squared stripes) at the center of the quilt in place of the 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch pieced patches in the pattern. That striped fabric at the center of the quilt is also the fabric used in the binding.
The quilt was quilted with free-motion stitching. There are scattered stars, treble clefts and spirals in the stitching.
Here's a peek at the pieced back. (The photos were taken at the city tennis courts in a local park. A fun way to hang a boy's bed size quilt)!
