A big quilt for a little guy

I have been finished this quilt for a while, but haven't been able to get it outside for photographs. The reason? It's another huge quilt!

I decided the spare bed in my son's room needed quilt so when he's ready to use the bed it's ready for him. Of course it's a queen size. I can't seem to go too long without making large bed quilts.

The pattern is "Sweet Talk" from Transparency Quilts by Ringle and Kerr. I LOVE this book and have earmarked almost every project in it to make. It's such a great resource for learning how to use colors to create illusions.

I've been wanting to do a shot cottons quilt for a while and this lent itself perfectly to using all shot cottons.  It's a little hard to see that they are shot cottons in the photos, but they are! Even the "white" is actually Ice. They are all from the Kaffe collection (I get all mine here).

I had my fabulous quilter Margaret quilt this one for me and as usual she did fantastic. I wanted something dense because the shot cottons seem a little thinner than regular cotton and because it will be on a little boy bed!

I'm really so thrilled with how this one came out. It's all boy!
