I'm a sucker. Totally. lol We got this gorgeous fabric panel in at work last year. BJ came into the shop with me one day & spotted them. Of course he was taken with it as at the time the "Guess How Much I love You" show was on ABCkids. So I got a panel & some fabric to go with it to make a mini quilt. The panel isn't very wide so I had to make it a bit wider. It's more of a panel for a wall hanging otherwise I think. Anyway, it's been quite popular. It is cute. I love the border panel too which I put on the back. That is cute too. But sorry, no picture of that.
Well I have had this fabric kicking around in the cupboard, falling out & stuff while I got other things out. So last week, one lazy holiday morning, I got the fabric out & sewed the borders on. I got it basted that afternoon as I had an off cut of wadding big enough for it! Bonus! Another scrap used!
I quilted it with clear thread & went roughly around the big rabbits in the middle. It looks cute. Also roughly over the butterflies. Free style quilting I guess I should call it! lol Around each of the squares & some stiple quilting down each side. I am a less is more quilter. I do like some quilts with pretty patterns etc quilted over them but there are some that are so over quilted that it detracts from the actual quilt top I think. Seems a shame after all that work in making a quilt top to hide it in the actual quilting.
I spent a few days hand stitching down the binding. Didn't rush. Just did some when I could. So yesterday I finished that off. The boys love it. They kind of need to share it really as I don't want to make them both one. BJ did sleep under it last night though. Nice...
