I am so excited to finally be able to show you all my finished product! First, I want to say thank you to everyone who participated. We love our readers and this interaction with them has been priceless! We hope you have enjoyed this as much as we enjoyed it!
So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the newest addition to Reed’s room – Dino Roars Fat Quarter Quilt!
When Sarah first approached me about doing a Quilt Along, I wasn’t sure I had the time to devote to making a quilt right now. It’s been crazy getting ready to move across the state and start a new job. Thankfully, she chose a simple pattern that was easy to complete and came together quickly.
For those of you who missed it, I chose the Dino Roars collections by Michael Miller. Well, actually, Reed chose it.
I used the fat quarter pack for the large rectangle blocks in the middle. Each block is separated by a red rectangle. My sashing and border are the fabric shown in the lower right hand corner above. And Reed chose the red Dinosaurs! fabric for the back. He even chose the plaid for the binding!
I used a straight stitch quilting technique and went up and down the rectangle borders. I completed it by circling the quilt three times to create a faux border.
I love the contrast of the plaid binding against the rest of the quilt. Kinda gives it a madras look.
I love how simple it is! Perfect for a little boy’s room! I do not have any pictures of it on the bed because we haven’t bought Reed his big boy bed yet! He is still in a toddler bed. When we move, we will transition him. I’ll take more pictures when we complete the room.
Now for our linky party! Please add your finished quilts below so we can show off your awesomeness to the world! If you haven’t finished yet, no worries. We will keep the link party live for a year. Just add them as you complete them! We can’t wait to see your quilts!!
