Comfy Cozy Wild Thing

Wild Thing is done. For some reason, it was one that asked to be washed and crinkled up right away, so it is comfy cozy.
I quilted in-the-ditch around the pinwheels, with some straight-line in the borders.
The gray in the Hometown fabric was echoed for the borders and backing, and one of the word prints was my obvious choice to bind it up.
In the end, my wild thing has become quite domesticated, as was proven yesterday, as my little granddaughter grabbed it from my sewing table, wrapped herself in it, and proceeded to drag it around the house. Clearly docile, just the way I like it.

Update 1/29/12: The first quarter of Quilter in the Gap's Finish-A-Long is over! My original post about it is here, and the First Quarter Linky Party is here!

Crinkly and cozy are the best kinds of quilts! I love the colors you chose. The red blocks really stand out. It looks like your granddaughter approves!

Hee hee, glad you tamed your wild thing, it looks fab! BTW, any chance you could turn your word verification off, it's REALLY difficult to use.

In my view - a quilt isn't a quilt until it's washed!

Heather said...

Nothing better than a just-washed and crinkly new quilt. :o) Beautiful!
