This is my latest quilt, its really simple but I love it.  Its 12 fat quarters from my green and blue stash (my stash is pretty embarrasingly large), with a cotton/linen blend sashing.  I used a pieced binding from the off-cuts of the fat quarters.  For the backing I used a cream flannel sheet, for extra coziness



and here is a picture of it all folded up



I free-motion quilted it, which was a bit of a struggle, since its about 60"x80".  Here is a close up of some of the quillting

Lovely! I've been wanting to make my daughter a quilt and this would be perfect-in pinks, of course! Now why didnt I think of using fat quarters?  Roll Eyes And as for using a sheet for the bottom, genious!

This is such a gorgeous, simple quilt (and a great way to use up fat quarters!).

I love how the cream sashing just lets the colours/patterns in the fat quarters really pop.
