There was somewhat of a color palette of blue, pink and purple and then black and white, but it was meant to be a little scrappy too. The main focus being on the fabrics. They needed to be salty, not sweet. A maniac badass kid, not a girly girl. Those were the instructions.
Finding fabric that reflects that, not so easy. Poo fabric was requested, and would you believe that I actually found poo fabric.
Dogs were also requested, that request much easier.
This is such a simple quilt, but I love the effect of the 9-patches together.
To make your own 9-patch blocks, I cut strips 4.5″ x width of fabric. And then subcut each strip into (9) 4.5″blocks. I use two strips to make 2 blocks, alternating the fabrics.
This salty quilt is off to its new home now, but if you are interested in having me make you a similar quilt, you can read all about the process here.
