As promised, I got Meow-lky Way quilted and bound before the end of the weekend.
It’s been nothing but wet snow/rain the last few weeks, so getting outside pictures without getting the quilt dirty was tricky – the whole yard is just a mudhole! (and with Relic in and out, my floors are just disgusting!)
I do love the colours of this one – all bright and cheerful – the purrfect thing to cheer up the January blahs.
The quilt finished up at about 52″ square, so it’s a nice cuddle size for the sofa, or a really big baby blanket.
And let’s take a look at that backing fabric again…
As I mentioned, it’s a cute flannel print that’s been in the stash for ages. It was a clearance bin buy from at least 10 years ago. I’d bought it intending to make myself pj pants. I never got around to it, though. I had six yards of it, and way back in 2012, I gave Sam half of it to make some pj pants for Lily. The three yards I had left has just been languishing since then. Obviously it was waiting for this project! It’s so nice to use up old stash!

What a sweet little quilt. I love your color choices.
Lovely – it really is a cheerful quilt and I do love the backing (and would love some PJ pants made out of that!
What a beautiful quilt! Your fabrics for the blocks are just wonderful and the fabrics for the borders, backing and binding are pretty spectacular. I can see that the backing fabric would make great PJ pants. After 10 years, I guess it’s time to be utilized in another project though.
This is such a nice quilt! The sunshine in the pic just makes it glow with colors!
Gorgeous colors, and that kitty cat flannel is the best.
I love it when things work out like that! What a darling quilt – you’re right, it’s perfect for gray days 🙂
Now, if you didn’t tell anyone about that back, they’d assume you picked it out special for this quilt! Couldn’t be any more perfect!
