Dinosaur Quilt

I had so much fun making the Ahoy Sailor Quilt, that I decided to make another baby quilt.  This time it is Dinosaurs.  I dislike paying for patterns, but since this one was so cute, and promised to be easy,  I decided to buy it here .

Large Quilt

The ease is due to the whole quilt being made out of squares and triangles.  No paper-piecing or templates.  One has to be careful to sew the triangles and squares properly.

I thought I would have to wait until Joann's had a sale, but after checking my stash, I found I had plenty of fat-quarters and enough background fabric to make the 48 inch square quilt.  I still had to go to Joann's for the  backing fabric.

 I decided to use my featherweight for this project.

All the plants were made first.
Then the two Brachiosaurus were made.

Next the two Tyrannosaurus were sewn together.

Then came the Stegosaurus.

Finally, the Triceratops.

Then all the dinosaurs sewed together with sashing and borders to make the 48 x 48 quilt top.

Making the quilt "sandwich" out in the driveway.

I was lucky and found a dinosaur fabric for the backing.

Here it is finished.  I used invisible thread to quilt it with my Bernina 640.

Thanks for stopping.
