This is only the second quilt have made (the first was a simple rail fence one). I made it for my nieces 2nd birthday.  Smiley

The animals have been cut out of Ikea Barnslig fabric and appliqued on to plain white squares before being sewn into the quilt. I had wanted orange fabric instead of the multicoloured one but couldn't find any to match (quilting and fabric shops are limited here  Sad) I had to use sating ribbon for the binding - I was going to use the green fabric but didn't have enough after making some other co-ordinating gifts and I didn't have time to go back to the store for more as I was ill for a week before I finished it.

The backing is fleece and I stitched in the ditch to quilt it

Anyway here it is:-

I also made the bed tidy at the side of the bed to match.

Any comments appreciated - I am new to quilting but it is becoming a new love!  Cheesy

This is really fab. I like it a lot. The colors are perfect and even though they weren't what you wanted originally, I think that the darker fabric really makes the whole thing pop. It's a very, very cute kids room.

Oh what a fun room. You did great! I was wondering what you were going to decide.
Lucky little girl to have such a cute room.

This is great!  When ever I make a quilt I end up running out of this or making do with that but in the end I think that's what so cool about quilting is in the end it always ends up working out.  Just like yours it is so cute!

VERY nice.  The colors worked out perfectly for the room.  Just enough of the green to match the walls without blending in. 

Don't you just love it when everything works out perfectly.

That is amazing!!  You did a great job on that quilt!  And it looks excellent to match her room.  I'd almost think you bought it instead of made it... thats how perfect it is!

It's nice to see the finished project after reading what all suggestions that were made on how to finish it.

Thank you for all your kind words!  Smiley

I am really happy with how it turned out (especially after I saw it in her room - my sister doesn't live near me so I had to try and imagine how it would look)

Quilting is definitely addictive and I am already planning to make some more!  Grin
