I wanted the top to be a classic pinwheel design. I used a pack of fat quarters and some fabric from my stash. I loved the pinks, greens, and blues. It's girly but not too over the top.
I think Gray likes it too!! It's not bed-sized, but it's big enough to lay under and stay super warm. I used organic cotton batting which is really thick and warm. It doesn't get really cold here, but we like to snuggle under blankets.
I'm not ready to tackle free-motion quilting, so I straight-line quilted this top by machine. Sorry to those "quilting purists" who hand quilt everything. Kudos to you!! I really don't know how you do it.
I like the backing as much as the front. I LOVE the super-loud print. It has all of the colors from the front and is fun and playful.
Since the binding was pink, I added some blue and green to the backing as well.
I'm a very impatient person, so I machine stitched my binding. It's going to take some practice to get it smoother and more even, but I like the result.
I look forward to making some more quilts, and trying new techniques. This one was pretty big for my first, so next time I'll make a doll quilt!!
