Fruit Ninja Baby Quilt

I was supposed to do this post before our impromptu trip to Disney but I didn't get on the computer in time so here it is a couple weeks late. :)

This is Emma's little fruit ninja quilt I made to test out Karin's pattern. The pattern was great and really goes quick. I did add the seam allowance to it though because I don't paper piece. I used Jungle Ave, Grunge, and Route 66 fabric for most of the quilt.
For binding I used one of my new favorite blenders right now the turquoise herringbone print from Native Sun.

I did have issues with my binding. Mainly because Emma hasn't been letting me sew lately and insisted on sitting in my lap pulling on the fabric while I was trying to attach the binding on.

It still turned out okay though especially for a quilt that will be used a lot.
The one thing that surprised me about this quilt was how much I love the feel of it. I used mostly Art Gallery Fabric and the Route 66 has the same feel as AGF so it made it such a wonderful light quilt after I washed it.

Emma loved it at Disney where it rained about 90% of the time.

Anyway if you want to create your own Fruit Ninja quilt/pillow check out Karin's post here with a link to the free pattern and you can see other blocks that were made using all sorts of fun fabric combinations.

I have about 3 more quilts I've started along with a bag that I'm hoping to get finished soon. I should really start finishing something before beginning something else but that never happens.  :)
