Topsy Quilt

The Topsy quilt top is finished and I dropped it off to my long arm quilter this morning.  We looked at a lot of quilting designs, and I chose a custom pattern that I'm quite excited about.  I hope you'll think I made a good choice.  

I'm really pleased with how this quilt has turned out.  I loved going through my blue stash and finding all the fabrics that would work.  

My son will turn 21 in July, and this quilt is for him.  As you can see below, it matches the feature wall in his bedroom.  I'm not sure what will happen to it when he finishes university and leaves home.  Will it stay in this room? Or will he take it with him? I don't mind if he wants to take it with him, provided he looks after it and brings it back home if it needs washing. 

My previous post about this quilt is here and it has lots of details about the Topsy pattern designed by Sheila Christensen.  

I enjoyed making this pattern and may well make it again in the future in a totally different colour way. 

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Another gorgeous quilt - so vibrant! There are so many possibilities for this pattern. I'm anxious to see it after quilting as well.

I just love how this turned out with all the blues and the grays for the gridwork. It's a great design and one I'm adding to my wishlist. . . as if I need more on my list. Hope your son loves it.

The quilt is wonderful, perfect for a young man. You may have to store the quilt for several years but someday he'll have his own home and need the quilt on his bed. Happy stitching!

Beautiful quilt! So much love sewn in to this son’s quilt. The array of blues is so beautiful and it goes nicely with the feature wall

What a beautiful quilt for your son's 21st birthday . It does look like a fun design to have worked with. Have a wonderful weekend and happy quilting.

Your Topsy quilt is just gorgeous, Wendy! It's a great pattern to begin with, but your fabric and color mix really puts it over the top. Did it go together fairly quickly for you?

LUV your quilt - those colours couldn't be any more perfect!
