I made this quilt for my Great-great niece who was born at the beginning of December. She was due after Christmas but decided to make an early appearance.
The fabric came from a Moda Scrap bag. All of the strips were from the "Happy!" range by Me and My Sister Designs. By the time I had cut the selvedges off I could cut 2" strips so that is what I went with. The cream fabric came from a cotton bed valance I picked up at a charity shop for £2. The batting is Hobbs 80/20 cotton. The binding is purple and came from a checked shirt. I finished the binding with hand stitching on the back. The backing was another charity shop find. One and a half yards of variegated poly-cotton for £1.50. I've enough strips and backing to make another quilt this size, so quite a budget quilt.
This quilt measures 30"x39". I quilted it using my new Husqvarna Viking Opal 670 in diagonal rows of a wavy stitch. For the border I did straight lines using the edge of my walking foot to keep them straight and even. This machine has an alphabet so I made a label and stitched it on by hand.
This quilt went together very quickly, completed in 2 days.
