Cute bears, woodland creatures and a variety of colorful foliage harmonize in forest greens and browns.
I started out with a few layer cakes ... steamed ironed & starched. I knew they would shrink so all squares were cut 4.5" x 4.5".
15 squares across by 18 rows down plus small borders on all sides makes this a perfect minky quilt at 60" x 72".
I am really liking the same color fabric for the small borders and the binding. Usually I 'frame' the quilt with a different colored binding - but after seeing this I will do the melding look again.
Aurifil 50wt. thread in simple straight lines on either side of the seams makes a nice square pattern.
To read about this minky's quilt journey from start to finish there are 7 blog posts under "How to Make a Minky Quilt" here.
Got the wooden box, the S'mores - just need a cuddly bear - and it's off to auction we go. This will be my third quilt to be donated for the Immaculate Heart Morther/Daughter Luncehon - the alma mater for both me & my daughter. So, from the Class of '75 & 2017 - this sweet quilt is made just for you.
