I'm so pleased to have this quilt finished, for three reasons;
1: The quilting went wrong, I was left with a baggy bit in the middle of the quilt and had to unpick all the way to the edge, repin and start the quilting again! Tedious is an understatement!
2: My friend bagsied this quilt when it was just square blocks unpieced hanging on the wall and I'm seeing her on Saturday and wanted to give it to her then - we're taking the kids to another roller disco!
3: This is one of the projects on my Finishalong list - yay!
Made with the Laurie Wisbrun Modern Whimsy layer cake that I won, some coordinating Robert Kaufmann solids, and a gorgeous Cath Kidston-esque fabric for the backing and binding.
I just love the striped binding!
I really didn't want to chop up the 10"x10" layer cake squares, the animal prints are adorable and I didn't want them to get lost in the quilt, I wanted them to 'make' the quilt.
The measurements are roughly 55" x 68" but it's in the wash at the moment so I can't confirm them exactly.
I'll be linking up with the friday parties...
