This was a fast quilt for me. I started cutting out fabric last week only to find that I needed more fabric. I ordered it got it at the end of the week. Saturday evening I cut it out. Sunday I sewed it. Monday I quilted and bound it. Don’t you love Ruby’s “bedroom” eyes?!?!
I had made another quilt just like it awhile back. I gave it away to a friend, then someone asked me to teach a class on it. That means I had to make another for a class sample…why the rush? I need it for Thursday-as in yesterday!! I am actually teaching the class today as you read this!
If you are looking for the pattern, it’s from Aardvark Quilts. If you are looking for the fabric I used, you can get it from All In Stitches in Zumbrota, Minnesota. The fabric is mostly Kaffe Fassett’s Woven Stripes. There are a few brushed cottons mixed in there too. I made mine it a 5 x 5 setting making it 60″ x 60″. I would get a minimum of 20 fat quarters for it.
I was SO happy I found the backing fabric at Goodwill last week. There were 4 1/2 yards and I paid $4.50 for it. It’s a woven plaid!!
I used variegated thread on both the top and back. The back thread was a bold coloring with primary colors. The front was a blue/purple blend.
I love the quilt. I don’t think I will give it away this time.
