    What a great quilt! The backing fabric was an excellent choice.

    That fabric was one of my first lessons. Never fall in love with a two year old fabric line. I ordered from multiple places to find at least a little of each of the fabrics. Somehow I first ended up with the back print in a fat quarter, then discovered the line. It is a Me And My Sister pattern too-Happy Dance. I just love their colors. i have a FQ bundle of Twirl also, and the leftovers of Happy will look pretty mixed with it.

    The pattern was a good choice for a first big project. Though I can piece more complicated blocks I didn't want to end up getting discouraged. Making the same simple block over & over let me work on my accuracy. It was also easy to cut out.

    Nice and cheery. I love the youthful eye appeal it has.
