The Sassy Crafter quilt

Have you ever been over to The Sassy Crafter?

She is one of my favorite craft blogs.  Recently, she asked for volunteers to test out a new baby quilt pattern she had made and I jumped at the chance!  I was beyond thrilled when I was chosen to test the pattern!  

Wahoo!

The pattern was really quite simple and her instructions were very precise.  

I used a quilt kit I had found on clearance at Joann's and I think the colors were fantastic together.  



I'm so proud!  My first quilt actually looks like a quilt!  

I picked the borders out with the help of a very supportive employee at Joann's who encouraged me to stick with bold.  

I think they are my favorite part!


And, I used a solid hot pink for the backing which also turned out awesome!

I admit I was a little bit terrified about the binding.  But, I swallowed my fear and did it anyway.  The quilt would have looked funny without it, and it really wasn't that bad!

So, thank you so much, Mrs. Sassy Crafter!  I had a blast making this quilt!

If you want to get your own copy of the pattern, you can click on her link and leave her a message.  She's offering it for free!
