Skipper Quilt Finished

Monday, May 13, 2019

 It took me a while to bind my Skipper quilt but it's finally finished!    
I love this quilt and man, I love this kid! 
He requested a new quilt since he outgrew his other one 
and he was totally on board for this Skipper pattern and 
these Sweet Tea fabrics by Sweetwater for Moda.   
I loved working with them.  
Great classic colors and prints; 
you can never go wrong with Sweetwater! 
The fabulous quilting was done by my friend Cathy Barney.  
She used this edge-to-edge design called Diagonal Plaid and 
I think it's a great design for a masculine look.  
Of course, all "snuggle" quilts must be backed with Minky right?
Since I made the twin size quilt and it finished at 72" x 86" I used 90" wide Minky.
That stuff is awesome!  There is no seam on the back of my quilt so it looks fantastic!
I bound the quilt by hand and added this tag for a fun finishing touch! 
This kid is very happy with his new quilt.
I hope he remembers how much his mama loves him every time he wraps up in it!

This is a beginner-friendly pattern that comes with 4 size options.
It's available in paper and PDF versions in my shop.
