Hi, This is my second quilt, finished just in time for my niece turning 1 tomorrow! I wanted to make her something special that her Mum would like also (or I fear it would end up in the bottom of a dark drawer! Tongue )

I made it from a charm pack called Tilda, and scrap fabrics in my stash. The backing is flannel as what little 'un can resist the feel of that!

Finished quilt

A couple of close ups of the fabrics, huge apologies for the bad lighting!

Thanks for looking  Smiley c&c welcome

p.s I have learnt that I HATE hand binding the most out of the whole process!!!

I think you did a wonderful job! I saw it and thought, this is exactly what I'd want for my little one's bedding! I am sure with how pretty it is, it won't get put in a dark drawer somewhere! Smiley

What a sweet little quilt. You may hate binding, but at least you've done it. I've still haven't taken the plunge.Tongue

@ MareMare I hate the time hand binding takes in comparison to piecing the quilt, and the quilting - it all comes together so quickly then I get on to the hand binding and it takes me forever! It probably wouldn't be so bad if I got on and did it rather than looking at it for days on end!!

@ Krafty119 Aah thanks very much  Smiley I presented the gift this evening and little 'uns Mum seemed to really like it! And my brother in law requested one for himself with cars and women on it! Men eh  Roll Eyes

@ amalgam I only got it done as the Birthday was looming! ha ha I don't finish anything without a deadline!

Charm packs are perfect for making baby quilts and this one is so sweet.  I'm kind of an oddball.  I love to hand quilt, so the binding for me, is a piece of cake.  This is such a sweet, girly quilt.  Love it.
