Love and Kisses - a finished quilt

A picture post of my finished quilt is about to unfold here. It was so, so much fun to make this quilt and I can't wait to see my little niece playing on it.

The finished quilt is 48in  x 54in which is a little larger than crib size so it will last her beyond that age.

It's odensely quilted with on a 1 inch wide grid using mostly ice grey on the top and off-white on the back.

I chose the pezzy print from American Jane for the binding to contrast in style but with the same colour palette as the back print

The back print is an Alexander Henry print that I also had in turquoise and I think those butterflies are equally as striking on a cream background.

All fabric was from my own stash and it felt really great having to hunt for those perfect prints for the heart shapes.

All my quilts are labelled whether they are for sale or are gifted.

And a sausage role for last....
