FO: Forest Stroll

Forest Stroll has been quilted and bound, and I couldn’t be happier with it!

Isn’t it just the coolest little lap blanket? When I started cutting the tree fabric for the border, I was a little worried it was going to be too dark for that bright cheery centre. But once I got it on there, I was thrilled.

It creates a beautiful frame and echoes almost all the colours from those scrappy leaves.

The little ladybugs marching around the binding are just too cute! (And were a great way to use up some leftover fabric.)

And on the back we have a cozy chunk of flannel that gives this one its name. Once again, the art of quilting amazes me with its ability to bring together random pieces of fabric and create a practical work of art!

    I can’t type the word love enough to say how I feel about this one. I think I may have found a way to use up all the batik fabrics I have left.

    That is such a beautiful quilt! I do not think you could have found a better border fabric. It is the perfect accent. Quilting is great. Noticed a paw print design in one of the leaves. You must have quite a collection by now.
