Finish It Up Friday – Dinosaurs!

Happy Friday, everyone! The Dinosaur quilt for Ezra is done!


This was a really fun quilt to make and it gave me a chance to use both my embroidery machine and my hand dyed fabrics, neither of which get used as much as they should.

Here is a shot of the back.       I used Angela Walters’ idea of dot to dot quilting in the hour glass blocks and a simple loopy design in the background of the embroidered/appliqued blocks.

Daughter #1 is very happy with it and that makes me happy too!

    So adorable! I like what you chose for the quilting. It lets the embroidered parts and hourglasses really shine. Baby E will love it, I’m sure! (Will he be Baby E? I see that his Big brother is Little E. Hmm.)

    What an adorable quilt! I like the strong dynamic quilting in the quarter square triangle blocks balancing the meandering around the dinosaurs.

    That is simply one of the most adorable baby quilts I’ve seen in a long time. No surprise that Daughter #1 loves it … Ezra will too, I’m sure!

    The wonderfully rich colors of your hand dyes make this quilt a real treat for the eyes, and the dinosaurs are just plain adorable.
