#xplusalong is FINISHED! :)

Shortly after the #scrappytripalong was in full swing on IG, the #xplusalong started :)  I just had to jump on board, of course.

With the wedding madness, I wasn't able to finish this as quickly as I would have liked to, but it's done now ;D

A fun note about the binding and backing... my neighbor gave me a HUGE stack of fabric that came from her grandma's attic.  It is super fun, vintage and funky!  There were two fabrics that were PERFECT for this quilt :)  (The fabric is over 40 years old ;)  ..does that make me vintage?

This quilt is for my daughters bff who is expecting a baby girl at the end of the month. We are having a baby shower for her on Saturday.

She is naming her baby Austyn :) 

For the fabric I used a lay cake that my sweet buddy Emily gave me after market this past fall.  It's Happy Tones by Michael Miller

I did a daisy fmq.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous. LOVE the colours in there - fab quilt!!!

  2. This is a gorgeous quilt, but I LOVE the photos you took...the light work is amazing and the wintery feel of the photos is just stunning!

  3. the colors of this quilt really arI like happy! I like the way the white makes it clear and crisp. Great pics!

    I was wondering where you got the pattern and what blog the quilt/along came from? the "click here" at the end just brought me back to this blog post. Did I goof? which is entirely possible!


  4. Love the colors! What a cheery, happy quilt!

  5. Love this quilt. You did a great job.

  6. Darling quilt! Did you get the pattern on line? I also saw it but it costed about $8. My second question is, Do you ever take a break??? (although we are two of a kind!)

  7. How wonderful! I just love it!!!

  8. The quilt is fabulous! Colors, pattern, binding, backing all scream out "HAPPY"!! I can't wait for the day when I 'finish' another quilt. (sigh)

  9. Love it all! That's the new Micheal Miller fabric, isn't it? Such a bright, happy quilt!

  10. Love it! You are super fun and funky so adding vintage to this list is ok by me:)

  11. It IS a very happy baby quilt, indeed! You did a wonderful job, once again! I'm awwwed:)
