dinosaur...grrrr

This one is for Piper's little brother.  If you know a Peppa Pig 🐷fan you'll understand the title. 😜
A simple rail fence block made with Riley Blake's Fossil Rim prints and Essex yarn-dyed cotton/linen blend.


I cut my fabric in strips both horizontally and vertically so all the dinosaurs would be oriented the same way.  I think because there's only one directional print here it would have really bothered me to have the dinosaurs going every which way.


The dinosaurs on the back are from the same line - I just love them. 


I used Lynn Harris' single fold 1/2" binding method from her book Every Last Piece.  I really do love how soft the binding finishes with this method.


So glad I took these photos when I finished it last summer, and not this month when it was finally gifted, because...sunshine!


I hope the sun shines on you this week.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You do make really cute baby quilts. This one is adorable! What child doesn't love dinosaurs? Interesting about putting a single-fold binding on a quilt. I've done that many times, but only with place mats, table runners, and wall hangings - things that don't get a lot of wear. Single-fold is definitely flatter than double-fold, and is a great solution when you're running short of a favorite binding fabric. Your pictures are sunny and happy-looking. Love those blue-blue chairs!
