Someone's checking out his new quilt!
I've been hanging on to my Castle Peeps fabric for awhile now. I only got fat quarter sets in the blue and green colorways because I knew I wanted to make a quilt for Owen and the red just didn't seem a good fit for him. I supplemented the Peeps with some Kona solids from my local quilt shop.
There are 660 squares that make up the twin size quilt top. Because I wanted a truly random placement I didn't do any strip piecing. That's a lot of squares to sew up! The quilting is a simple straight line on the diagonal. And even though it's hard to see in these pictures, I love the binding, which is a deep eggplant purple Kona. It matches some of the Peeps boots!
Here's the back, just some Moda yardage picked up cheap at the Fabric Depot outdoor sale last summer. If you look closely, you can see that the row of castles on the back looks upside down in this photo. That's so it can be turned down when the quilt is on the bed and be right side up, like you can see here.
And this is what makes it all worthwhile!
