You see, I will let my girls pick out fat quarters at Joann's when they are on sale. Let me remind everyone that fabric shopping with 5 girls in tow is NOT fun- for me, them, and the store employees. Recently, Grace picked out this one with unicorns and hearts in pink and purple. I mean, what is not to love for a (then) 3yo girl? She soon insisted that her pink cheetah (which had been confiscated) was cold and needed a quilt. Well, I was in the mood to play along and sew something quick and easy.
I had some quilt blocks, border fabric, and binding left over from quilt I made between 2006-2011. (You might be able to spot some of them on my quilt page HERE.) So, I give myself bonus points for using up old scraps. :)
I just pieced the simple 4-patch blocks together, added a border, quilted diagonals, and bound it.
Grace didn't like the quilting on it because it was visible on the unicorn side. Too bad.
Then, my 7yo took some pictures for me after the leopard and cheetah were reunited with their new quilt.
Happy kids + Very old scraps used up = Success.
