Kiwiana Quilt for Marcus, a set on Flickr.

(I’m testing sending this directly via Flickr. We’ll see how it turns out. Edit: Clicking on a picture takes you to the Flickr page, but at least it makes it easy for you.)

Now Marcus has a double bed, he needs a bigger quilt than the one he has. Preferably finished by about June/July for the peak of winter.

I’ve been looking for a pattern that is suitably boy-ish, but will also work for him when he’s older than he is now. I finally went for this Kiwiana pattern I found in an issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting (Vol 21, No 12). I’m going to make a few changes, making the squares line up rather than offset and using black for the background instead of white.
