DWMonday ~ Dinosaurs

E2 has a birthday coming up soon. He is pretty much obsessed with dinosaurs. So I ordered a few fabrics and got to work. Isn’t this panel awesome?

I also ordered a yard of this.

And a yard of this.

The border print had four stripes across it so I had to piece and match. I’ve shown before how I do this, but here it is again.

First, I press under one edge and then lay it on top of the second piece to match.

Then I gently pull back the top layer and add a line of school glue.

I lay it back down and set the glue with my iron.

What I haven’t shown, is that I open it up and stitch in the ironed fold line and then trim away the excess seam allowance. I added this border print to the top and bottom. I need to add a border strip along the top and bottom also to get it to length. I’m trying to decide between the two blues I’ve shown below.

It’s a pretty simple quilt, bug I think little E will love it.

Have a great day!

    What a great way to make a panel into a quilt! It’s sure to be loved! (my oldest almost-4-year-old grandson would love it!).
    I really like the darker blue fabric – I think that it matches the rest of the quilt better…

    I love that panel! Little E will certainly love this quilt! For what it’s worth I like that lighter blue for the border, it has a kind of mysterious swampy look that seems like it goes with those dinosaurs. Maybe bind with the darker one?

    What a fantastic panel and coordinating fabric! Little E is going to love this!
    For what it’s worth, I like the darker blue on the bottom. Both are lovely.
