A quilt for Katie

Here is the finished quilt I showed you sneaks of here and here, that I made for my {5 year old} niece.

I used Thimble Blossoms’ A Piece of Cake pattern and it really was just that … a piece of cake. I think it took me 2 days to cut and piece the top, 1 day to piece the back and make my quilt sandwich and 1 day to free-motion quilt. Of course that’s not working on it all day long … you could pretty easily have this done in a weekend.

I modified the pattern to fit a twin size bed with a 12″ drop by adding 2 more rows of blocks {10 additional} to increase the length (not the width) to 87″. I used one layer cake {10×10} pre-cut squares from Robert Kaufman’s Treasures & Tidbits fabric line and then used a few other fabrics from the line for the borders and back piecing. I used my favorite cheater binding method on this one, so the binding follows the look of the back piecing.

I did free-motion quilting and used white Sulky thread which has a bit of a sheen to it and makes the quilting pop a little more.

I can’t wait to see how this looks on my niece’s bed … I hope she loves it!

** Shop update Monday with {2} new colorways for eReader & tablet covers AND a new colorway for camera strap slipcovers. {Hurray!!} **
