Quilt Roundup

I made these quilts a while back but haven't shared them before. They were Christmas presents for my goddaughter and her two brothers (all under 3 years of age!). The family were moving house and the kids were getting their own bedrooms for the very first time, so it was great to be able to make them something personal. I went for bright, bold colours and prints and  backed them with cosy fleece. I bound the blue and green quilt with home-made binding to match the quilt fabrics. It was really fiddly and I wasn't totally happy with the finishing, so  for the other two I followed the Easiest Cheat for Binding a Quilt tutorial at prudentbaby.com. It was much easier and gave the quilts a snuggle fleece edging that I love!
