Playtime Quilt

Incredibly fast and incredibly cute! The Playtime quilt is done!


Using the Playtime pattern


 in the Sew a Modern Home book,


a striped fabric and some ric rac, 


makes for a super easy, fun quilt! It may be cheating, but it sure is adorable, don't you think?


The wavy line quilting adds to the playfulness, which was carried into the borders.


Though the pattern does not have borders, I added the yellow 4" border to make the finished size 40" x 40", a size I prefer for baby quilts.

And on the back, a soft flannel, and the fun quilting.


Got striped fabric? Ric rac? Need a quilt in a hurry? I definitely recommend this pattern--just too cute!

Happy Quilting!
