I started this quilt back in January, working on it slowly, very slowly, but it is finally done!
These are the Ed Emberley fabrics in the centre. I love these prints! They are so cute. I did not have the pleasure to grow up with the drawing books that Mr. Emberley created, but I am so happy to have discovered these images now!
I made 12 blocks, which makes for a large throw or a nice play mat quilt. It could be used for a single bed (twin) but does not have much (or any) overhang, which I think is fine. We don't make our beds here anyway since the blankets and pillow just end up being used for playing with. Could this quilt inspire bed-making? (my quilt makes me want to make my bed...sometimes). Wishful thinking!
Here are some money shots of the aminals (typo intentional):
I machine quilted it with straight lines, using an aqua thread. Simple.
I machine quilted the binding too, with a zig-zag stitch. I have heard a few people say they do this, on blogs and in person. I really like the look! I used a variegated rainbow thread and it really works with the quilt. It also made machine binding less time-consuming. A win-win!
