Peek-a-Boo!

See that little guy in the center, in the plaid shorts and green sweater? Isn’t he adorable, like he’s playing hide-and-seek or peek-a-boo?! And see those sweet little bluebirds and bumble bees? I love this fabric, it’s called “scouts” by Alexander Henry. It’s been in my stash for a while, and not wanting to chop it up too much, I mad e acute little asymmetrical, improvisational boy quilt showcasing the fabric in all it’s glory.
I’m also a big fan of that orange and white starburst fabric in the strips that surround my row of different sized coins.The quilting on the strippy side is straight line, and over the scouts fabric I stippled (I’m even getting pretty good at that!)
The backing a sweet. soft flannel, that I got some time ago from JoAnn’s. And the binding is a scrappy orange pieced binding, incorporating several of the fabrics I used in the coins. I’m really liking this quilt, and might even be a little sad to give it away in the next few weeks…

…not that I have any use for it, myself…

  1. That's an adorable quilt! I can see why you'd think it's difficult to part with. Don't you just love adding orange to a quilt? I think that's my favorite bright color. Ya done good, Doris!

  2. That is cute fabric! What a great way to preserve a piece of fabric you love. I also love the additional colors you added, and that backing is adorable too. Nice job with this one!
