This was a very quick little quilt/play mat for my new nephew who was born 6 weeks early!
I got the top pieced, basted and quilted in an evening. Then the poor quilt sat in the studio like a lost child, waiting for its binding. See, I had decided to be a Smarty Pants and do curved corners (talk about a contradiction in words) so I just had to have bias binding. My normal straight cut binding wasn't going to make it around those bends. So I fidgeted and got all worked up about having to go and buy some yardage just so I could cut it on the bias to bind this tiny little quit. 2 weeks went buy and I was messing about in the fabric cupboard when it jumped out at me
Buried and forgotten (how could I??!!) was this lovely bias binding from Karen at Blonde Design which arrived with her charms as a thank you in the recent charm swap I ran.
I wasted no time, I grabbed the quilt, threw the work I had been doing off the table and got set to binding. When I was done, it went straight from the washing machine, to the dryer whilst I text the un-suspecting new Mummy to arrange to deliver it. It is now in it's new home hopefully being admired and used.
I proudly unveil the mini i-spy quilt!

now its time for winner winner chicken dinner! I had 17 comments plus Indie emailed me with some suggestions so 18 in total. Mr Random chose no 11, Cindy!
Congratulations! Happy 100th.
I have a pattern that is catching my eye, but I haven't tried it. It would be perfect for rainbow charms, I think :)
Congratulations Cindy! I'll be mailing you soon, check your inbox :-)
p.s. did you spot anything different today ;-)
