A friend loved this fabric and then got pregnant and had a girl.  Good planning on her part.  Now she will have a quilt for her new daughter in the fabric she enjoys.

I wanted it to be modern with the blocks on white but i'm quite happy the way it turned out on the purple.  The back is one big piece ("border fabric").

Sorry for the bad pics.  Cell phone.

Very pretty!  Great job on this!

You don't actually have to make bias tape (which involves cutting the fabric on the diagonal) for binding a quilt - you can just cut 2.5" strips, sew them together to make a really long 2.5" strip, and then fold it lengthwise and iron it.  I thought it would be lots harder than it actually was, and now I love the idea of the matching binding!

That's a fantastic quilt! Can you tell me what fabric line this is?  I love it as well.  The purple looks really nice with all of them too.

baygirl, like Padester said, don't worry about the binding.  just cut 2.5" strips, iron in half.  Its easy. 

Linnybelle, the fabric line is Tillbrook Fairies.  Looks like its hard to find now but I found one reference for you.  It comes in pink too.
