Ballerina Quilt is Done!

I'm so happy to share this quilt with you.  It's my very own quilt to cuddle under.  I used the Jaybird pattern "Ballerina" and Tula Pink's fabric "The Birds and the Bee's" along with some quilting inspiration from Angela Walters.  It turned out way better than I could have imagined.  I used one layer of Quilter's Dream Poly batting.  I wanted the quilt to be soft so I could snuggle under it this winter.  It is the perfect size!  Here are a lot of pictures because I couldn't stop taking them.  Just look at how cute this fabric is!

 Squirrels as the backing!  Is that cute or what?  Tula Pink is an amazing fabric designer.  One of my very favorites!  Can't wait for her next line to come out called "Salt Water".  I'm definitely making something out of that.
 Some more pictures with the light hitting it just right.  Ha! :)

And of course all foled up neatly on my cutting table.  Love this quilt so much!  If you haven't tried a Jaybird pattern before, I strongly suggest you do.  Her directions are very easy to follow and she always writes her patterns with all different size options.  I love that she does all the work for us!  Thanks for taking a look.  I hope you're having a good week.  Happy Quilting!
