Once I got a grip of myself again I realised that a whole big quilt using this pattern in this fabric just isn't for me, and I decided to make a baby quilt instead. I added a few borders and some straight line quilting, and then just a teeny wee touch of hand quilting in green perle to the white borders.
I used some of the remaining jelly roll strips to make a scrappy binding which I stitched down by hand one evening and voila! A very bright and happy baby quilt :)
I've popped the quilt into my little Etsy shop, before I decide that I need to have another baby just so I can use this quilt. If you're interested, you can find it here.
Fabric used is American Jane's ABC123 for Moda plus some scraps
Backing is a lovely American Jane print from Snippets that the lovely Gertie sent me :)
Wadding is Warm and Natural (NOT the easiest to hand quilt!)
The quilt measures approx 39" x 39"
