Wow, that looks so cute and happy!

I love that fabric - I made these two bags a couple of years ago for friends:

and I kept meaning to make one for myself too, but never got round to it. I've still got loads of the fabric, now I'm thinking I really must make one. Thanks for the inspiration!

beautiful quilt!

I would like to share something I learned, make sure you quilt as close as the batting says, it might say every 2-4 inches, etc. the long strips you have that are not quilted when washed will start to bunch up Sad

Thanks. You're right - after I posted this I looked at it and wanted to quilt it more. It looks much better now too.

My boyfriend loves it!  He says it was by far his favourite present.

Tringle - I got the skull and flame fabric at a sewing show in Birmingham. I've never seen fabric like that in actual shops, sadly. When I was buying the flamey skull one, two old ladies looked at me and pulled a face and were all *oooh, that's not very pretty fabric!* It made me laugh.

This is only my second quilt, and it was definitely a lot easier and a lot neater than my first, although there are still a lot of skew-whiff bits.   When I made my first one, my boyfriend was impressed, and said that he'd like one, but only in man colours and with NO FLOWERS. It's his birthday on Monday, so I have made him this.

(Mickey is the Prince of Darkness, he thinks it's his quilt!)

The back:

I still haven't decided whether to quilt it more - I have just done it in the ditch every couple of squares in. I like my quilts quite poofy. I've left it for tonight - I might add more tomorrow.

Oh wow, that is stunning!  And weirdly, my first thought when I saw the thumbnail was that it reminded me of Hokusai!  I was watching a programme about him on telly last night though, so he was already in my thoughts... I love Hokusai.

Thank you!  I know it's not as pretty as some of the amazing quilts on here, and the fabrics are a bit of a mish mash, but it does remind me of Granny very much. The fabrics are soooo soft too, because they were all really old and had been washed so many times. My mum loves it (although her dog seems to be trying to steal it!)

Yes, I have got a mat and a rotary cutter, but it was still so fiddly!  I think it was partly that some of the fabrics were quite old and soft and stretched in all sorts of directions, and because lots of them had straight lines/check patterns it was really hard to cut them straight.

Oooh, that's so pretty!  I tried making a laptop bag once, but I think that the batting just wasn't thick enough, and I wasn't confident that it would protect the laptop. Yours looks perfect though.
