It is fun to have fun

I cannot express enough how happy I am that I finally finished this for my nephew!
I really love this pattern. I saw it in a Charlie Brown print and knew it was perfect for my nephew.
It is called Marbles from the Simply Fat Quarters book.
It is one of two quilts I have in the works, so the investment was worth it!
I went safe with the quilting. Meandering and stippling.
It actually has never been my strong suit when FMQing, but I am liking my pattern more and more.
I just pretended I was wandering in circles and taking right and left turns, just like Dr. Seuss does in all of his fun and wacky books!
I was really happy with the cuddly fabric from Shannons Fabric. It was one of the suggested selections when I ordered the Fat Quarter bundle. I have to admit, I was worried, but I was really happy with the texture of the quilting and how soft it is. However, I was burning up when I was binding it, so warning: heavy and warm!
I have to show off the border. Isn't he cute!
I was glad I chose a red fabric, the fish in the bowl, that wasn't in the bundle to contrast for the binding.
The quilt label might be my favorite.
I digitized a Hat from a coloring book and used a funky font.
I sure hope my Gabe loves it!
Fabric: Robert Kaufmann-Cat in the Hat
Now to tackle more quilts. I am swimming in finished quilt tops!
