HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I made and finished up this quilt just in the nick of time as a baby present for my sister-in-law who will give birth any day to their first little one. It was a pretty quick quilt to put together since you use a charm pack for it. I used Moda's Half Moon Modern for this one. The pattern calls for 48 squares so I cut a few extra squares from my backing and binding material. I got my inspiration when I saw this quilt here and followed the tutorial, Storytime Squares which is from Made By Rae. Here is the finished up quilt top:
And here is the finished up quilt (before I washed it). Don't look too closely at the long-arm quilting because I am still a REAL beginner. I quilted big X's on the printed fabric and some conch/shell looking design on the white fabric.
For backing I used Big Dots in Sunshine and for the binding I used Writing in Steel-both from the Half Moon Modern line.
I love how fun and bright the quilt is and am happy that my new little niece can enjoy it too:)
