quilt-along finished

I finished one of my quilts for the OldRedBarn Co. quilt-along. I am a bit ahead of schedule by 2 or 3 weeks I think. I knew I was going to do a simple quilting on this because I used a thin blanket in place of the batting so I just skipped ahead.

I had some binding left over from another quilt and thought it would work well for this quilt too.

The back is an old sheet that I dyed a few weeks ago. It has some permanent wrinkles that I couldn't iron out, but I think it just adds to the character of the quilt.

I also made a quilt top in a boy version from the same quilt-along. This one will get the same treatment as the girls. A dyed sheet for the backing, scrappy binding possibly, and a nice thin blanket for the batting.

This has been a fun quilt-along! I'm planning on making a few more quilts similar to these.

I love how the quilts are perfect for a girl and the other perfect for a boy. So bright and cheery.
