I made this stack and slash bug quilt 8 years ago for Justin’s first birthday. I had planned a bug themed party and found all these great bug fabrics and decided to try a stack and slash method. It ended up being really fun and turned out so bright and cheery. I had someone machine quilt it for me with variegated thread, (my favorite!) which makes the lighter blocks really pop with detail.
I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but this quilt has been LOVED. It is soft and puckered from many, many washes—and that is my favorite thing about it!!
I am linking to the following parties!
