Fun with ABCs :: Fastest Quilt Ever!

My shop recently received some cute kid prints.

Included with the line is the adorable panel.

The panel is 36" by width of fabric. So I took a panel home along with a backing fabric and binding. This was one of the easiest and fastest kid quilts I've ever made. I quilted it simply by outlining the blocks and going around the "tape measure" border.

It took me a little over an hour to baste and quilt it! Seriously, I brought it home Saturday afternoon after the shop closed at 3 pm. I had the thing done before dinner. I sewed the binding on after dinner. 

It finished at 36" by 42" which I think is a great size for a kid or baby quilt.

For the back I choose the squares print from the line and I used the letters on black for the binding. These are the first and second prints on the left in the first photo of this post.

 It's ready to hang at the shop!

That's a great panel, and you did a super job completing it so quickly. I love quilts like this - someone can get a hand made quilt that didn't take you much time to make.

Love your quilt. Aren't panels the greatest? You can get them done in no time,
