Ocean Waves Chevron Quilt

One of our little farmer boys had birthday this weekend. 

The BIG 10! 

Double Digits!! 

He loves to read especially about the ocean. 

At dinner he often shares some amazing aquatic creature fact he has just read. 

He sure keeps the conversation interesting!
I made this Ocean Waves Chevron quilt for his birthday. 

He is on the top bunk which is so hard to make each morning. 

Twin size blankets and quilts are too big because of the rail that goes around the top bunk. 

He gets so frustrated trying to get his blankets straight. 

This quilt is top bunk size!

I used the Missouri star quilt company tutorial HERE

Quick and easy!

Then quilted it making wavy lines with my walking foot.

I love how it looks like waves. 

I had enough left over fabric to piece the back.

Happy Birthday Big guy!
