I made this quilt top about a year ago. It was supposed to be my son's Christmas present for last year. I'm not sure if he's going to get it this year. I'm still debating that.

It's a modified layout of the "Just can't cut it" pattern. It measures 42"x42" square. The main fabric is Michale Millers Rocket Rascals. The red squares and inner border are my favorite because it's a super soft Ultra Suede. I machine sewed the binding - I'm working out a tutorial on how I do this.

I wrote a little post on my blog about how I wash and dry my quilts in case you are interested:

Your quilt is beautiful. I bought some of this fabric a couple months ago with the intention of using it in a quilt. This is some good motivation to actually get going. Great job!

This is so gorgeous!  I love the colors, and really love that rocket pattern.  *do not need to run to the fabric store...*
