A new quilt

Can't believe that I have already finished this as I only bought the main fabric less than two weeks ago! Usually things sit in my to do pile for months before I even start them!

This is B's new quilt:

I actually wanted to make him one that had a far more complicated pattern but the materials were just too busy so I went for 6" x 8" block instead.

Here is the back:

Just plain but with a fabulous new monster print that I got in Hobbycraft.

The main front material cost me just £16.00 with the matching border strip a further £5.  The monster material was an additional £13 and the wadding was left over from my A Quilter Lives Here quilt that I finished a few weeks ago - all in all a bargain and also a big hit with my little boy who loves it!

Thanks for looking - All Sewn Up from Solihull
