Quilt for my niece

For Christmas I made my 7-year-old niece a quilt.  She’s also one of my goddaughters so I like to make her something a little extra special.

I’m not much of a quilter – but every once in a while I like to pretend that I am.  I think this is the 3rd or 4th little quilt I’ve ever made. It turned out ok.  There was a bit of puckering on the back, but not too much.

The fabric is from Robert Kaufman’s Remix and Urban Zoology.  They are really bright, fun prints perfect for a 7-year old.  I simply picked up some 2.5″ fabric strips here and just sewed them together for a simple quilt top.

The back was a large fun flannel print I had from Jo-Ann’s.  Instead of adding a separate binding, I just used the back rolled over onto the top to make the binding.  Too simple – especially since I was short on time before Christmas.

I think my niece liked it.  She wore it wrapped around her like a cape for a few hours after opening it.
