Dino's on the loose!

A certain wee tot asked me to make her a new nap blanket for school. She requested dinosaurs, purple, pink, red, blue, and purple. I think this fits the bill.

It presented a bit of a challenge. The fussy cut dinos all started at different sizes, so I needed to get a little creative with the building of the blocks. It worked out nicely I think. I am particularly fond of the pieced sashing. I didn't bind this one, because there is no batting. I backed it in flannel and "pillow-cased" it.

My customer was very happy with the outcome, which is most important. She was also thrilled to be a quilt holder again for the photoshoot.

She's getting better :)

In other news, I have been a busy bee. I have finally made the decision to officially go into business! Wow, it is a lot of work. I hope to be up and running by October 1st. Stay tuned for announcements and changes here.

Have a great weekend,

Katie
