beep! beep! boys quilt {pattern giveaway}

Many of you know that between Jessica and I, we have six boys, zero girls. Not that I'm complaining AT ALL, but I do have to say that girl quilts are usually more fun to make than boy quilts. Except every once in a while, when a darling quilt pattern like this comes along! I'm in love!

My little guy still does not have a quilt from me yet. Yet. I will get to it before he's one! And I love that this quilt, Beep! Beep! by Vanessa of Lella Boutique, might actually make it possible! It's a pretty simple design with super simple quilting (straight lines are my favorite).

Vanessa says that this is a quilt anyone of any sewing skill level can make. It utilizes simple applique technique; most of the work is tracing and cutting out the car and arrow shapes! The comprehensive pattern is available in her shop in PDF or paper format.

And because Vanessa is so sweet, she is giving away 5 copies of Beep! Beep! to our readers! To enter to win a paper OR digital copy of this quilt pattern, just leave us a comment and tell us what you would do with this pattern if you won. Would you make it for your own little guy, or a nephew, a friend's baby? Would you use that boy fabric stash you've been holding on to for years, waiting for the perfect quilt? Let us know by Thursday, July 19 2012 at 11:59pm PT--we'll post the winners on the 20th. Can't wait? Order the the pattern from Vanessa's shop now!

I would make this quilt for my nephew he is only 8 months at the moment but it would make a great big bed quilt for him!!

Catherine said...

Awesome! I'm a mom to two boys and love this quilt. I'd make it for my younger son...and if my sister's baby is a boy, I'll make one for him, too.

Mama Tully said...

So adorable! I'd love to win this pattern so that I can make my future son his first baby quilt :)

Jamie said...

I love this pattern, and I don't even have any baby boys that I'm super close to! However, my sister has 2 step sons (not babies) who would probably love this quilt, so I'd make 2 of them for the boys to use at my sister's house!

Jenny said...

I would make one of these blankets for my son. He would love it!

What an adorable quilt, I would totally make this for my son and my nephew. The are both toddlers.

thismommade.com said...

I would love this quilt. I can see a whole boys room with this. The quilt, pillows, quilted wall art. My boy is a year and a half now, but maybe for when he turns two and gets a big boy bed we can do car decor.

Mosaic Magpie said...

What a cute quilt! It is very hard to find a quilt pattern for a young man that loves cars but here is a great one! Just perfect for any young man! My friend has a grandson that would love this. If I won I would share the pattern with her!

I would love to make this for my daughter....she loves cars and trucks and transportation.

Beth Buster said...

Well, I have 5 boys, and my very first nephew. I would probably have to draw a name out of a hat to see who got the really cool quilt! Or, I could just make the quilt 6 different times! This is the most amazing quilt I have seen for boys!

Jenn said...

I would love to make this for my daughter who loves trucks, trains and buses....anything transportation related.

Sandy said...

I would make this for a friend expecting her first baby soon!

I want to make this quilt for my son.

Josh_n_Connie said...

I'd make matching quilts for my two sons!!

acatsews said...

We're in the process of moving our transportation-loving guys (2 and 4) in together. The room needs to transform from baby to big boy and this quilt would certainly tie everything together. Of course, I'd be making two!

Kelly said...

I would totally make a quilt! I am definitely a beginner with sewing and have always wanted to make a quilt, but have been quite intimidated. :)

lbilgihan said...

The fabric is perfect for my son's nap time quilt at preschool.

suzmlee said...

I would make this for my little man. It would look great in his room, and he loves anything that has wheels!

If I won a copy I would make a bunch of this quilt and send them to Quilts for Kids. A wonderful organization that gives handmade quilt to children in the hospital.

Well, I have four boys and this would be a perfect quilt to make four of and unify their room. They really need an update!

Missy said...

I absolutely love that you said, simple and easy to make, straight lines, any sewing level. I have been looking for that special pattern to learn by. Ive been wanting to learn how to quilt for a long time. And I'm fairly new to sewing as well. I would love to learn with this pattern!

Sarah said...

Baby #3 - a BOY - is joining our family next month. This would be such a sweet gift for him.

Unknown said...

I would make this for my 13 month old!

Lal said...

I have two sons. They each have bunk beds. So that's 4 beds awaiting boy quilts. And let's face it, I have enough 'boy stash' fabric to cover them many times over!! Gorgeous pattern.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Adorable! I would make one for my son and any of my friends who have boys :)

Mhairi said...

I would make a quilt for my son. And I would love to use some of the designs for a pillow for his bed too.
Then I would probably have to make one for my little girl who loves trucks almost as much as her brother!

Cecilia - Mis Lanitas said...

Beautiful! I was waiting for an awesome pattern to try quilting for the first time and here it is! My little boy will be leaving his cradle and "graduating" to a bed soon, when the brother/sister arrives. This would help a lot with motivation! Thanks for the giveaway!

me said...

I would make a quilt for my son for his first birthday and another for my nephew's first birthday. I am she they would love them.

Stacy said...

So cute and so boy! I would totally make this for my 4yr old and he'd love it.

Mike and Jen said...

I have a nephew n the way, and since I've made his 3 brothers quilts, I suppose I will be making another little boy quilt. ;-) this would be perfect!

Karen said...

Amazing! It's so hard to find baby boy stuff that's not too cutsie. I would make this for my own son - haven't gotten to a baby quilt for him yet and he's almost one! And maybe for his two boy cousins who are within 2 months of him, wouldn't that be cute if all three of them had similar baby quilts?!

Felicia said...

I'm so not a quilter, but this pattern makes me want to try! My son would love it!

becks said...

my 3 year old still has his crib bedding and i need to get him something fresh, even better to make my own with this super modern and not too themed quilt. LOVE it!

TileGirl said...

I'm currently working on my very first quilt and the pattern is ZigZag Frenzy from Lella Boutique! I saw this pattern already in her shop and LOVE it. I would make it for my friend who is pregnant with her 7th baby....baby 7 needs an awesome quilt of his own and not a hand-me-down from baby 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6!!! I could make a small wall hanging for the nursery as well. =)
