Children at Play ~ Part 1

And this is going to be a quilt just for the girls.  All pretty in pink, and red, and blue ... always a winning combination for the girly girl.


I have picked out numerous prints from the Children at Play fabric collection by Sarah Jane (see Sunday Stash #106) and mixed in just a few other prints including a bold Michael Miller polka dot fabric on a red  background, and a light blue/white stripe from From Little Things by Sarah Fielke.


Not much planning went into making this quilt top. The half square triangle border that surrounds the center panel is a direct result of an attempt to use up some of the strips of fabric that I had cut incorrectly. 


The  large scale border fabric (Children at Play - On Parade - Multi) however was always part of the overall grand plan.

Now one for the boys ...

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  25. I love this line of fabric. I haven't had a chance to pick up the multi on parade, but it is lovely! Love how you used it in this quilt. I keep thinking it would make a lovely strip for a backing.
