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.
Cutting and piecing took me about two hours, I did it all 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.
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!
