Castle Quilt

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!



I made this Castle Quilt for my oldest son five years ago when we moved into our new house, and I wanted all fresh bedrooms.  To a quilter, making a quilt for someone says, I care about you, I love you, and I wanted this quilt to tell this message to my son. 

She is a queen-sized quilt, and this was the first large one I made.  I used a castle quilt pattern that I found online and added the border strips in a brick fashion.  The top of the quilt is a McKenna Ryan fabric of blue trees in the distance, chosen as a background for the castles.  I had it professionally quilted as I didn't have a long-arm quilting machine at that time.  To tell the whole story, I just put the binding on her yesterday!  Yes, just yesterday, five years later!! It has been on his bed unbound for all these years!
