My first finished quilt of 2011!

Wow, what a sense of accomplishment!  I've finished my first quilt of the year and January isn't over yet!  



I modified the Moda Bake Shop Ruffle Quilt to make a larger quilt for baby or cuddling.  I used a Moda Fandango scrap bag that I purchase for a steal on eBay a few months ago.  The ruffles and backing are coordinating prints from my local fabric store.  I bought a ruffler foot from JoAnn to make the ruffles but it didn't fit on my silly Bernina.  Doh!  Back it goes!



The quilting is a meandering pattern.  I made a pieced binding from the leftover scraps.  I'm super pleased with the way this quilt turned out!  I had planned on selling it, but now I may have second thoughts :D

Great job with the finish! That is a great idea to check out ebay for fabric - especially Fandango.

I love pieced binding. They take a bit of time to make, but they add so much character to a quilt. Great job this week.
