Wild Thing

Here is the first of quite a few quilts that have been on my to do list.  This one was made for a very special friend who finally married her Prince Charming. 

I made this quilt using Thimble Blossoms pint-sized Wild Thing pattern.  Obviously this isn't the pint sized version as I transferred the ratios up to bigger blocks.  These block came in at 16 inches finished. I used mostly Heather Bailey's Lottie Da, with a little bit of Scrumptious and few other prints thrown in. I liked it just how it was a decided to forgo the borders. I straight line quilted it at 1 inch apart. Quilt is also bound in Lottie Da and the back is a solid green to match the front.  This is the first quilt that I cut out and pieced all in one afternoon.  I count that as a great success considering the fact that I had five boys under 8 in my house that whole afternoon.

 I'm hoping that when this girl is done Honeymooning and gets around to opening her presents that she likes it as much as I do.  After all, she is kind of a wild thing herself…
