Camouflage Throw for a Grandson

Most of the fabrics used in the front and back of this camouflage quilt were bought at Walmart. The olive strips were cut from a pair of cargo pants from the Good Will Store. The quilt top pattern is based on Mary Johnson's "Quick Strippie" quilt. Thank you, Mary. This is a great pattern for a small quilt. I think I made the strips a little longer. And I sewed on a border. It was quilted with wavy lines using a walking foot on the sewing machine. After a go in the washing machine and the clothes dryer, it finished at 50" x 66", a nice throw for a child.

I see what you mean about the camo. I hope you will feed your soul and use some bright colors next. I'm sure your son will love this one, but for you...
