Hello Blog Friends!
Well, I have been hard at work, trying to complete the Dino Dreams quilt top by the end of the weekend. I'm happy to report that I've achieved my goal! Here is a photo of the finished top. This is a large quilt...it covers the top of this double bed! The block I showed you in my previous post makes for an interesting pattern when joined with the others.
Because this is for a child, I plan to use flannel for the backing, so it has a soft and cuddly aspect. I will use black for the binding. I have some longer pieces of the dino border stripe, and plan to use a stripe on the back also.
I ran in to some issues with the pattern (free, downloaded from Avlyn). As a seasoned sewer, I was able to compensate for mis-labeled assembly instructions and incorrect measurements. A beginner would have had difficulties with this. I downloaded this pattern several years ago, and hopefully Avlyn has corrected the errors by now.
I'll be completing this soon, as Zach's birthday on July 5 is fast approaching. This coming week I'll be taking a short hiatus from sewing. I'll share the finished product with you soon.
