What materials did you use? Scrap materials from past quilting. Fabrics from old aprons and left over from clothing as a child.

Your playfulness with colors makes a delightful pattern, and the falling gig that continues to the back reminds me of falling stars! Well done!

I agree with Hulalulu. The gig added to the border and creative/fun backing are terrific!

what is the size of the quilt? which sewing machine did you use to quilt it?

this is a baby sized quilt (35" by 40" ish)

This baby sized quilt is aprox 40"X35". I used scraps, some pieces of fabric are older than my 44 years, example the purple boarder is from the early 70's. I pieced and quilted the quilt on my Pfaff Tiptronic 2040. The body of the quilt is echo quilted and I free motioned a free hand pattern around the boarder.

I must admit the appliques were a necessity. My 3 y/o took scissors to the quilt while I was in the process of quilting. One through and through in the frame and several nicks in the backing. Ended up making the quilt better in the long run.
