Yesterday I bought Walmart fabric. Yes. I really did. I had to. See I have a little girl who is turning two today. She LOVES Scooby Doo. I just haven’t seen Scooby Doo at a quilt shop. I found a super cute print. Yes it is thin, but at least it isn’t see through. Can you forgive me?
I was a little worried how my quilt shop fabrics would work with my Walmart piece, but I think they are playing very nicely. Michael Miller and Fabri-Quilt accent Scooby very nicely. Sure, the borders of the quilt will last longer than the center, but I’m okay with that. This is one quilt that I wouldn’t mind if my two year old wore out.
I predict it will be a favorite. Why? Not because of my superior piecing ability or the border fabric that perfectly accents the center print. Not even because of the dog bones or “scooby snacks” that I quilted on it. No, it will be a favorite because of the minkee I put on the back. The stripe wouldn’t have been my first choice, but it was 40% off. At that price I love it.
So here’s the picture of the quilt:
I made a pillowcase too. I hope these will help her sleep in her bed. I’m mostly impressed that she hasn’t actually seen it yet. I can’t wait to see her reaction.
