Monday is my granddaughter's 3rd Birthday. She loves Emma and the Wiggles. When I saw that fabric had been released for the Wiggles, I knew I had to make her a quilt. The fabric was really hard to find. I prefer yardage, but I managed to find a panel and lots of fat quarters. This is what I came up with. The photo looks drab (bad lighting) but it is a bright quilt.
Since I had so many extra fat quarters, I decided to use them in the backing.
I decided to have fun with the quilting. I only do straight line quilting, and this is the pattern I came up with (yes, I use scrap paper to to take notes on and to try out ideas).

I quilted it using a variegated thread (King Tut's Cleopatra). I've used this thread many times. I'm almost out, so I had to order more for the next quilt.
I finished up by making a faux piping binding. Since I didn't have yardage, I used 2 fat quarters for the binding, alternating the blue and red.

The quilt is washed and ready to be shipped to Alaska. I know, it probably won't arrive in time, but that's ok. She'll get to celebrate her birthday again when it arrives.
