An Almost Whole Cloth Quilt

I'm a fan of whole cloth quilts. Why? Because they are simple. And when I find a great quality print that is too cute to cut up, I know it would be great for a whole cloth quilt. For those of you who may not be familiar with the term, it means that the top and bottom fabrics have not been pieced.

In this case, I bought two adorable Alexander Henry fabrics in the Flea Market collection for the top and bottom. I thought they would make a great whole cloth quilt, but when I got the fabric home I pushed myself to do more. So, I pieced one horizontal stripe with a few characters from the backing fabric along with some coordinating stash fabrics.

I just love the backing fabric called Flea Market Friends

Here's a closer look.

The binding is Kona Cotton in Celery.

I just love the stitching and will definitely be using this stitch pattern again.
