I have been remiss! In checking my posts, I realized that the final Nerd Quilt was never revealed. Mea Culpa!
To recap: The Nerd Quilt was designed for my 16 year old grandson in EQ8 and has nice big squares to show off the circut board fabric from Spoonflower in three colors. Two different variegated blue threads are used for the border, sashing and setting triangles. Magnifico in black is used for the squares. A variegated green Fantastico is used for the inner border. There is lots of quilting, but what you see is the fabric and design.
My grandson received his quilt yesterday, with anticipation and glee! So let’s look at the final reveal.
This is a tough quilt for photography and the quilting is a bit difficult to see, but we will do our best.
It has been fun to create my grandson’s dream Nerd Quilt. He chose the fabric pattern and basic color scheme (deep blue and green which suspiciously aligns with the regional soccer team colors!). I added the aqua and contrast tone grunge for sashing cornerstones to bump up the contract and visual interest. It has great texture and is a nice and masculine while being aesthetically pleasing.
Happy quilting all!
