Right before I left on vacation, we got in the Cozy Cotton flannel line. I absolutely fell in love with the baby colors and I knew I had to make a quilt for a friend who recently had a baby.
I decided to use the Fast & Furious Quilt as You Go book from GE Designs as the pattern. I appliquéd the babies name on the center of the quilt using the pattern for letters in Atkinson Designs new Fonts book. I cut it out in about 1/2 hour and it took about 4 hours total to appliqué and make the quilt. I went to put the binding on and had bought this great stripe. I cut it all on the bias last night and went to put it on tonight and realized I was short. Not only was I short, but I had cut it all straight when I was doing the tube method of bias binding. Apparently I turned my triangles wrong. So luckily I had the other part of my 1/2 yard cut and I cut it on the bias and got the stripes going around. It took me less than an hour to re-cut the binding and attach it. Now I only have to hand sew it down. When it’s done I’ll have to take a picture, but I want my friend to see it in person first. Here's the binding that I worked so hard on and made wrong, so it's unusable.
