    This is a quilt I made for my oldest granddaughter's birthday. My idea was to make her a lap quilt that she can grow into. She turned 8 Sunday and loved it. I chose the name because some of the fabric has stars and most is floral fabrics. I put flannel on the back. I learned the process of making this quilt at a quilt show this year. The quarter circles have folded bias strips sewn onto them (as you would a flange border). The backqround is actually a square of fabric and the quarter circles are sewn onto the square. Instead of sewing at the edge though it is sewn at the inner edge of the black bias strip forming a flange. I think at the show they trimmed the background behind the quarter circle, but I didn't trim.

    The quilt is really square, I just flipped in down on the floor and shot the pic as it was getting late.
    By the way, don't pay attention to the date on the photos; I still haven't set the date.

    The back is cute and the front is out of this world. She is a lucky girl.

    Thank you everyone; I really appreciate it. Purple and pink are her favorite colors. I think it must be a Hannah Montana influence as my great neice's favorite colors are pink and purple. Both love Hannah.

    The name of the pattern is Mango Tango, and it is from Laurie Shifrin Designs. I forgot to include this info when I posted the pics.

    Kathy that is beautiful - 'girly' enough for a little one but stylish and elegant enough suit the woman she'll become! And I love the technique you used. It's like a different take on Drunkard's Path and the bias strips give it a stained glass effect. :-D

    Thank you Ranger and auntiehenno. YOur comments are appreciated

    k3n, Thank you so much. This really is a fun technique and much easier than a Drunkards path even though it is more steps. It's great for someone who can't sew two pieces together on a curve.
