Block Wall quilt

Friends.
I think this is one of the EASIEST quilts I've ever made.
 
I make a lot of easy quilts.
But..... I think....this one was the speediest of ALL!
 
I gave a brief "how to" here.
;)

And..... I think it's gorgeous!!!!
 
It will be a GREAT boy's quilt.
My daughter even paid me a HUGE compliment
and said it was the BEST boy quilt I've made.
Woo HOO!!!
10 POINTS!!!!

I have enough fabric to make one
and maybe even TWO more!!!
Hey!
I'm thinking IF I have enough fabric...
I'll cut some up and have a little give away!
Then...
You can make one TOO....
and confirm the simplicity of this pattern!!!
:)

Here's another reason to cheer!
I USED UP a bunch of BOBBINS!!!!
 
You know the bobbins that have
red, orange, green....etc. thread
and...
don't match anything????

Here's the proof that I'm not a THREAD color SNOB.
;)
LOL!
 

 
Happy quilting!
I'm OFF to cut some more strips!
All those solids
and
SORT of solids
are waiting to be another QUILT!!!

  5. I think it one of the most striking quilts I've seen. It has a modern look with the color blocking. I keep saying it but boy you are fast. Easy or not, I'm not that fast!

  6. Looks like a good quilt for a guy grad - they seem to be harder to make something for, don't they? Thank you for sharing your technique on this one.
