I bought a bundle of fat quarters of Savanna Bop in flannel from the Fat Quarter Shop, and added a half yard of the yellow elephants and green vines so I could make a flannel backing to the quilt as well.
|Cheerful and interesting, nice.|
Instead of stitching in the ditch, my default when I want to be speedy and not take any chances, I decided to quilt on either side of each seam about 1/4" away. This would have been a brilliant idea if I'd not just cut each fat quarter in half and half again, but actually measured and squared up the blocks. Hence the lines get a bit skewy in places... but the baby won't mind, right!?
|Here is is pre-wash, casually slung so as to disguise not-so-straight seams!|
|Proof of loveliness, and a partially clear sky in Ireland in mid-December!|
Plus I have little blocks of the flannel left over, and I will at some point (post-Christmas) have to make some of these burp cloths by Cloud 9 Fabrics! Bonus points!!
I'm linking up this week, for the first time, with Link A Finish Friday and TGIFF :)
