Quilt finish #5, my little pony

I am trying out mobile blogging, so who knows what this will end up looking like!

I finished quilt five this week, a my little pony quilt for sam. She has been asking for one for a solid month, so I put my head down and cranked this one out quickly.
Binding in the sun yesterday. Binding has become my favorite part, which is odd, since I used to dread that part.
The pattern is moda love. It's free online, but I don't know how to link on the iPad. Oy.

Cutting and piecing took me about two hours, I did it all in one day.
Quilting took about two hours, also done in one day.

The hardest part was finding the right rainbow stripe for the binding. After days of searching I turned up  this stripe at hancocks. It reminds me of fruit stripe gum.
After washing.
All the other fabrics are currently at Joann, except this huge polka dot on the back, which was vintage. I have a whole bolt in my stash. Sammi said, " oh, those big dots are my favorite!"



She has been carrying it around every moment since I finished it.

I want to do more playing with pattern scale. This is a fairly easy block, just HUGE. However, the next quilt is an exercise of a different kind. :)

P.S. With every quilt certain things get easier! I can tell I am gaining experience and skills. Yippee!

  2. I am so happy that you are finding more time to quilt. You are on a roll!! And Sam obviously needed those swimsuits to go with her new quilt. She is so stylish :-)
