This first picture is of a block that I think is pretty clever. I am sure someone else invented it first, but I haven't seen it before ;) I made a block that is a pocket with a zipper in it. What little boy does not need another place to store his treasures! No frogs, please :)
My boys think that Skylanders are the best thing to put in it. When I put the Wii remote in it my boys were worried I was going to give it away with the quilt ;D
Here is the completed top. Since all of the blocks were different sizes, I added sashing to the top and right side of every block and then cut them all to 10.5" square. I thought it would look different. I am not sure what I expected... Any hoots, I ended up having to add a border to two sides to complete the trim. The zipper block is not trimmed on the two outside edges. You know, "One of these things is not like the others.." I like that it is different :)
PS- my boys all want a pocket in their quilt now ;) I think I will put them in all of the children's quilts that I do now.
