Colourful Cars!

Bought this beautiful bright fabric at Cottage Patch. Great quilt for boys! Didn't feel like cutting them up into individual cars as I didn't want to spoil the picture. So I simply cut them into 4 x 6" wide stripes lengthwise and added bright borders all around.

Played around with the 3 main colours - red, yellow & blue. The 1st border was a bright 2" red, followed by a 2" sunny yellow and finished it off with a 5" bright blue polkadot fabric.

Backing fabric was a complimentary bold stripes from IKEA - perfect combo! and the binding was a bold solid fabric.

Bright & Big - Gorgeous!

A is for for Annabelle

A lovely ABC Alphabet panel from "A is for Annabelle". I've cut them up and put 2" plain baby blue sashing in between.

1st border was 2" plain light baby pink and finishing border was a 5.5" complimentary darker pink printed fabric.

Backing fabric was also from the same line - lighter printed pink with pictures of baby things in circles. Really nice & fun! Added the same plain light baby pink all around.

Pretty big! Fits my teenager's bed beautifully!

So glad with how it turned out! Hope you like it too A.
