A New Quilt Started....AND Finished!

Husband came home with an invitation to a baby shower for a couple from his work. I offered to make a quick baby quilt. I "shopped" my stash and found this funny frog fabric.
I added some primary colors--from my stash (except the green....had to go buy a fat quarter, for I have NO primary green fabric at all!) and here is what I came up with...
The backing had to be pieced; it turned out cute too!
I machine-quilted straight lines and bound it in a multicolored stripe. After a run through the washer and dryer, the quilt came out so snuggly and soft and just as cute as can be!

Way to go, Julie!! Love the wild and happy frog fabric, the colors you put with it, the pieced backing, and what a perfect binding fabric to frame it!

All this wonderful color and a speedy start/finish, too.

Applause, applause!!

I love to make baby quilts. It's so satisfying to start and finish a project.
Yours is darling. I love primary colors for babies.
