]After a very enjoyable time at Doughty's the fabric has been sorted.
This is for a 15 year old with strong ideas and she wanted a red background
It's a good thing I am now accumulating a small stash as one just didn't work but I had an alternative available.
It was hard transferring pretty pastels of original pattern into  'teenage bright'

Well I have begun. A lot of different fabrics to cut to various sizes, few are the same size

I must say once i changed the blade in the rotary cutrer it was so much easier - it glided without cutting myself

I did my own version of that for great niece when she was born nearly two years ago now.

@Iminei  I’m not sure. The stripe on mine was from the same group of fabrics that I bought as a set of fat quarters and can be seen as ribbons on the front. I bought yardage for the backing and enough to use to bind as well. The stripe runs up the fabric so it was just wof and joining. I like striped bindings when it fits with the fabric used.

@Bjay it might have been me - I’ve posted the link up a few times as it is one of my favourite simple quilts to make. It is FQ friendly and looks so different depending on the fabric choices! I love the bold colours you have chosen

These ribbon quilts look quite interesting. But @Iminei that one's going into my "if I ever decide to quilt" folder. Its looks like a really challenging, colorful crossword puzzle full of 1/4" seams!
