Jurassic quilt

I’d been putting off finishing this quilt top because I didn’t have a back for it. You may recall that this one went a little off the rails, and the piece I had set aside for a back wasn’t going to be enough.

But when I was at Lens the other week, picking up a few things, I stumbled across this.

Four yards of an adorable prehistoric print! Sold!

So that meant that I had to get the last column of dinosaur prints together, and finish that top. I spent one afternoon finishing the last six sets of toes, and then the next completing the top.

I had found a really nice grey print that looked a little like stone to “encase” each column. And incase the dinosaur theme wasn’t clear enough…

The teal border fabric really hammers it home!

I hope to quilt it this weekend, and bind it all with more of that lovely grey. Look for an FO post next week!

    What great finds!!! It’s all coming together nicely. I wish I had that much luck. I never can find good backing anymore. I’ve wasted a lot of money of material I hate when it gets here. I miss shopping for fabric more than anything else. It’s just not the same online.

    That quilt top is just adorable! Love your fabrics in the blocks and the strips and border are just perfect. The backing is just the icing on the cake. That quilt will be such a wonderful gift.
