Quilting happy

I’ve never made a quilt before so I had to give this a try. Even though not a true patchwork quilt it was a lot of work and I’ve been learning along the way. I’ve used a printed patchwork effect for the front, cotton sheeting for the back and polyester wadding for the well, wadding.

Its not perfect as I didn’t follow all the rules about starting in the middle and working outwards but the it still looks good and I am especially pleased with the mitred corner binding as I have never done any kind of binding before. I even made the binding strips myself.

This was for the my son’s second birthday and he does love it.
