Binding Tool Star Quilt
I let him sit down and look through my issues of Block magazine, and he chose this beauty for his new quilt. The original pattern was a little small for what he needed so we increased the number of blocks from 16 (4x4 layout) to 36 (6x6 layout) and left off the border. The original pattern called for a jelly roll of fabric, but that wouldn't have been enough for the extra blocks, so I figured up the yardage to cut our own 2.5 inch strips. He went with me down to the quilt shop and picked out all of the fabric. I think he did a really good job.
The finished quilt top measures 96 inches square. In fact, it would actually fit a queen size bed pretty well, as you can see above with it laid out on my queen size bed.
