This quilt is for my boot camp instructor's new addition. Baby was born last Thursday, and I immediately got to work finishing up his quilt. As the only piece remaining was the label and a run through the washer, it didn't take long.
Kellie Wulfsohn "Peak Hour" fat quarters I had in my stash, I created my own design. I really like how it came together and am thinking I might have to make another one using some different fabrics and see how it works out. I especially love the bright, happy colors in this one!
For the back, I used the leftover fabrics from the front (there wasn't much left!) and then added a couple more fat quarters and a happy aqua blue. Go, stash, go! I had accidentally cut a couple of strips of the orange fabric the wrong width for the front-- so I made put those to use by including them in the binding. It definitely helps liven up the outside edge. The finished quilt measures 39" x 51".
The label was fun to make. I decided to try out some crayons to color in the cars. A couple of the colors didn't survive the wash (where did you go, red?), but it's all good.
Hopefully, baby will enjoy lots of fun snuggle and play time with his new quilt!
