I'm not really sure what to call this little gem lol

A friend of mine had a beautiful little girl back in May and asked if I could make her a quilt with black and white zebra and cow prints, solid lime, and solid hot pink.

Because it's so bright and "busy" I wanted to keep the actual construction as simple as possible so I simply sewed strips of 10 inch squares together and centered 5 inch squares on top.

I'm sure many of you watch DIY Dish with Kim and Kris. I sort of used an idea they had in Season 4 Ep. 9 of sewing squares onto one big piece of white flannel with the raw edges exposed to allow it to fray. I just sewed each square individually vs. sewing straight down the entire length and width of the quilt top. Once all the small squares were sewn to the larger ones i sewed the larger ones in strips, made my sandwich and quilt by simple stitch in the ditch, easy as pie.

I couldn't find the right flannels locally so I chose to use regular quilting cottons, a natural cotton batting with scrim, and a super soft but lightweight pink fleece for the back.

I'm hoping regular quilting cottons will still fray enough to give it that "shabby" look

enjoy!

Very fun! Have you washed it yet? The confetti quilts use raw edge cotton fabrics for a frayed effect so I bet it will look great!
