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!
That is totally awesome – my Big C would love that too!! If you care to share where you shopped??
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.
