I've posted about this quilt in a short snippet in the first post of my blog. I have never shown it in its entirety.
Before I started this quilt I had decided to use 2 1/2" squares, but I wanted to have them be random, which I am not at all good at. So I thought of all those Sudoku quilts and thought what if they were larger? I can't say I solve Sudoku puzzles, but I found a 12 by 12 Sudoku puzzle that worked with my twelve fabrics. In each block, no fabric repeats in each row or column. The quilt looks random, but I have 6 large 12 by 12 blocks that repeat. The binding is scrappy and random looking too.
I love that there are hedgehogs and fabrics that have the numbers 1 through 9.
It means a lot to me because it was for my son's third birthday that August. He loves hedgehogs and needed a big boy bed quilt. Even more special was my son's repeated phrase. "Mommy... this makes me so happy." That's where the name of my blog comes from. It makes me so happy too to share this with you.
