What materials did you use? Exactly as suggested in the pattern. Really not sure of the difficulty because I just followed pattern and anything I couldn't manage I googled or spoke with the ladies in the shop for their guidance

What are you most proud of? I have never tried hand quilting and so far so good. I have machine stitched the main part of the quilt and the dinosaurs in place and am now working on the hand quilting detail. I had a small problem when machine quilting - my scissors got caught in the backing and I put a small hole in it. I have patched it (my special message to F - see photo) - I love my repair job and am contemplating putting a hole in the back of every quilt! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Now that the quilt is finished my only advice would be "Just do it" It was fun to do and once my finger tips hardened up (because I cannot use thimbles) the hand quilting was not nearly as hard as I first thought.

I adore this quilt...perfect for a little boy. Your hand stiching is great, and I love the fabric you picked out for the dinosaurs. And I love the way you fixed the boo boo on the back...Brilliant!

I would really like to make this. Can I get the pattern? Thanks, Harriet

Hi Harriet, the pattern is available from Amitie Textiles - I am sorry but due to copyright laws I am not able to reproduce the pattern myself. Amities website is listed in my comments section :)

Thankyou :) My first try at hand quilting, don't think I will hand quilt everything but will certainly hand quilt details from now on. Gave it to my 16month old grandson (Fman as we affectionately call him) last weekend when we visited and he gave the dinosaurs kisses!
