Super Simple No Seams to Line Up Guy Quilt...

...for lack of a better title!  I even asked my boys for some ideas - "super cool line quilt"  and "cool quilt" were some of the wonderful suggestions I received!  My inspiration came from here with no help naming this quilt either.  But it is simple and easy to make!

53 x 63

Blocks are cut at 6.5" x 4.5" and sashing is 2.5"  I used most of the same fabrics from the last quilt, but this time I wanted to use up all the striped fabric.  I love the striped binding.  I didn't know weather to connect my strips on the diagonal or match them up straight.  So I went with diagonal because it goes through my binding machine easier!  Here's a closer look at the prints.

 Lots of stripes on the back.  It wasn't tall enough so I just cut it in 3 places and added some fabric from the front. I was all out of the red which would have looked great on the back.  Still looks great.  I think stripes are perfect for a guy quilt!

  1. This pattern is great, too! Love the striped backing and binding. I use it when I can on bindings.

  2. I love it! Such a simple, fun pattern. Just gorgeous!

  3. I adore stripe bindings. Gotta love "no seams to line up" quilts.

  4. Another great quilt-quick and easy. Saving for future reference :-)

  5. My son would love this with all that orange! Once again you picked a great pattern to use what you had. Love it! Especially the big stripes on the backing.

  6. This quilt turned out great, Shannon! The border sets it off perfectly!
