Colorblock Quilt + Onesie {sewing + diy}

Right before we departed for vacation, (back in the first week of August) I decided aside from packing and getting on the road, I also should finish the quilt a friend had requested for her nephew who is due in early fall. The baby will have gear themed bedding, so his Aunt + I decided to use a robot + gear fabric theme, and this colorblock pattern (from Bijou Lovely)

I decided to quilt each block differently...

The center strip was a zig zag: 

All of the white border was quilted with a thin horizontal line. 

One block had multiple size circles:

The green block was the same across the small block + the large block.

And I absolutely loved the back of this quilt. The robot fabric is broken up with a strip that resembles a braid.

I hand embroidered a special message to the quilt's recipient in the braid:

This quilt is for a special little guy...his Uncle served with my husband in the Army + his Dad also served in the Army, my friend requested a special onesie to commemorate their service:

This was a fun project, probably should have waited until after vacation to finish, but I loved these fabrics and couldn't wait to see the finished quilt!
