My first "Film Strip" quilt finished, and it is beautiful! I love the vibrant colors and little Kermit displays, for the first time EVER I wouldn't change A THING about this quilt, I think it's perfect. I hope my nephew enjoys sleeping under it as much as I enjoyed making it.

As I haven't gone home to my parents in a while, I was forced to baste this quilt on my kitchen floor. As you can see, my kitchen floor is rather small and therefore difficult to baste a Full size quilt so I had to baste half of it at a time. This is the second half:
I used 390 saftey pins on this quilt, more even than the King quilt and I LOVED it. It made the quilting process soooooo easy and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
As you can see I used a different stipple technique for this quilt. I'm not sure what its technical name is so we'll go with the "loop" stipple. This might be my favorite kind of stippling, I also used it for the quilt "Sunny Day".
This quilt is so vibrant, it's bound to be a perfect birthday gift for a three year-old.
I LOVE the back and binding too! It was just so much fun!
This quilt measures 88''x64'' and should fit a Full bed quite nicely. After I took the pictures I washed and dried the quilt creating lots of puckery goodness! Both "Kermit" and "Frames" are wrapped and packed and will be delivered to their recipients this weekend. Wish me luck!
