Joel Dewberry Quilt

I just finished Craig's birthday quilt last night (and yes his birthday was two months ago...details). It's fabric from the Aviary collection by Joel Dewberry matched with some cotton solids.

The backing is flannelette for maximum snuggliness.

It's the lotus brick pattern by Amy Butler but I did it as a quilt as you go, in the long strips so that I could do it all on my home machine.

The binding is not completely perfect but for my first full sized (and all by myself) quilt I am very happy. Happily so is Craig. It is perfect for hanging out on the couch.
