Zipper Quilt - Baby size

Just finished sewing the binding and label on this cute little baby/toddler quilt.  The pattern is called The Zipper quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I used a charm pack of pre-cut 5" squares from a new Moda collection called 'Aloha Girl'.  Also used was a Cotton Supreme bright white in the blocks and inner sashings.

This is a really fun, fast, and easy quilt to piece together.  You can watch the video tutorial that gives you detailed instructions at the following link:

The border fabric is an Andover Dimples light blue that has been in my stash for a couple of years.

The most precious fabric was found in my stash to use for the backing.  Honestly, I believe this fabric may be close to 20 years old! :) :) :)

The quilting design I decided to use is call 'Peonie' and it can be found at Urban Elementz.

And just in case you are, I didn't make this with anyone specific in mind.  :)  I've been wanting to try this pattern and thought the 'Aloha Girl' collection would make a precious version.  This will be another quilt I put away for when I need a baby gift or donation quilt.

What have you been up to lately?

Until next time!!!!!
