Day 88 - 100 days of quilts

Lane's quilt

This is a modified project from our "Town and Country" CD for Electric Quilt. I made this quilt for my son's 3rd Birthday. Being the country boy that he his, I thought that this paper pieced farm quilt was perfect. But what if you don't have a farm boy to make it for? Well here are a few more ideas on customizing this quilt.

Cottage theme - instead of the farm house and silo, make a couple of cottage's, turn the fields from gold to shades of blue and add a boat instead of a tractor.

Another farm variation - change the fields to shades of green and add a spray plane (the plane was in the original design)

Neighborhood theme - a row of houses and instead of the railfence block just use a package of charm squares.

See how easy it is to modify a quilt to suit your style? Happy customizing.
