My first completed project of the New Year turned out to be the very first quilt I ever started piecing. I found a great home for it as a gift for my future sister-in-law, who is expecting a baby boy, and that was all the inspiration I needed to get it done!
This quilt is very similar to my first completed quilt, which was made for another of my nephews. I was (pretty obviously) inspired by the very popular Cluck Cluck Sew Zig Zag Quilt.
The backing is this adorable animal print that just-so-happened to be the exact match to the colours I chose for the quilt front. Amazing! I bought this piece of fabric a few months after piecing the front, and I'm so glad I did.
Finally, I bound it all in a yellow solid called "Buttercup". At first I hesitated (my future sister-in-law loves orange) but I'm glad I went with the yellow--it picks up the polka dots in the print on the back.
How are your 2012 projects going? Finish up any WIPs already?
