I have been making a few quilts lately. This one was a gift…..for a friend who loves all things bright colors! It made me branch out a bit more than I normally do with colors….but I think I need to do that more often because although the fabrics are not usually something I would put together I do I love how bright, cheery and fun it looks!
I just did a simple strip quilt with a piece of main fabric down one-third of it. And I do love strip quilts…because they are fast! I did the whole quilt top in an afternoon even with cutting all the strips. The finished quilt is approximately 60 by 70 which I think is the perfect cuddle size.
I tend to let Melissa quilt things with whatever she wants these days and she did a square/rectangle pattern that I love! She really is awesome….
The backing is a Riley Blake print and the binding was their aqua polka dot that matched.
