A Christmas gift for my new and super-snuggly nephew, Simon.

Love the blue against the white!  Good way to use up smaller pieces in one's stash!

Is the back white also?

Yes, the back is all white!  I find that any bright colours on the back of a white quilt usually makes it look dingy (if it doesn't shine right through), so I stick with the basics!

I was asking because for 2013, my goal is to simplify all of my crafting, including my quilts...I love the clean, bright look of yours a lot! Cheesy

Thanks for posting and inspiring me to d something similar!

Very nice quilt! I'm trying to get an idea of the scale --- did you use charm packs for the printed bits? What are the finished dimensions? I'm hoping to bang out one more quilt before our bambino makes his appearance in the next week or two, and you have majorly inspired me!

Thanks so much!  I'm not sure of too many exact measurements... I never use patterns or pre-packaged fabrics!  What I can tell you is that I cut 6 inch squares of each fabric. I put a white square and a blue/green square on top of each other, right sides facing, and sewed around all four sides so it was all closed in. Then I cut each one from corner to corner (like an X) and got four blocks (of a white triangle and a coloutred triangle) from each. Hope that makes sense!
