Lizzy House Rainbow Quilt Completed!

When I first discovered fun, modern fabrics - I knew I liked the fabrics by Lizzy House.   Her designs are so whimsical and especially appropriate for children - girls and boys.  I also ADORE the pearl bracelet print and I am thrilled they are now available in so many colors!  Anyway, these fabrics have been sitting for too long - I combined prints from the Red Letter Day, Castle Peeps, 1001 Peeps, Hello Pilgrim - and there are even a few Outfoxed and Lizzy Dish prints in there!
 I cut 4" x 7" rectangles from my fat quarter pieces - it is a size that creates very little waste for this type of design.  This quilt actually gave me more trouble than I would like to admit - let's just say that squaring it up may have been more of an adventure than I truly cared for.  I was working on this during a very sleep-deprived couple of weeks thanks to a baby with a cold and a preschooler who finally discovered how to climb out of his bed.
 A while ago, I picked up several yards of this castle print (on sale of course), which I used for backing and I bound the whole quilt in a Hello Pilgrim stripe.  I did a simple, hurried stipple over the whole quilt using my home machine.
I have lots of leftovers of these fabrics- not sure what to do with them but they will probably be helpful in making some baby quilts in the future.
