A little fishy

February seemed mighty loooong didn’t it?  Or maybe it’s just because I love March.  4 birthdays to celebrate within 1 month = birthday cake all month long!  So by April we’re all sick of sugar and my pants are tighttttt. ;)
I made this top in September and I’m still in love with that goldfish print.  The pattern is Juice Boxes. 
It’s a very bright quilt.  :)  I quilted it with straight lines about 1 1/2” apart.
The back and binding are from JoAnn’s.


Hope your having a nice start to your March!!!

    Isn't that binding fabric fun ?~! I picked up a bit of too and have had using in strip piecing. I'll have to try it as binding on a small piece (that's what I have left). I love the colorful quilt front. The pattern looks great

    Your March sounds like our January and February. I usually declare March our sugar free month. ;)

    Love the quilt.

    Hello, this is my first visit, I've just had a lovely time looking around. Your work is amazing!
    I'm new to patchwork, bought my first fat quarter last week, I think I'm going to find your blog very helpful.
    Going shopping tomorrow to buy some fabric to make your camera strap!!
    Kindest regards from the french alps.

    So Bright and Happy! I love it. I love the straight quilting too :) It makes it so perfect. Ummm… I love Feb but we'll just forget about all that, lol. I bet your month is a blast and I can see why you look forward to this month. What a good time eating cake all month long! Happy Birthdays to you :)

    Sweet quilt. I keep forgetting how nice straight lines are! Now that I can FMQ, I'm lazy about quilting with straight lines. =)

    I agree that Feb could have been way shorter. Welcome March!

  25. Anne March 5, 2014 at 4:13 pm #

    Such a cute little quilt. Enjoy your cakes this month.

  26. Ellen March 5, 2014 at 9:19 pm #

    I love that quilt–especially because it's all about the fabric. Straight line quilting is also my favorite. I can see myself making one of these.

  27. Kate March 6, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    I have some of that Goldfish fabric in my stash but I dont want to cut it til I find the perfect project :)

  28. Susanne vb March 6, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

    What cuteness!!

    1. The straight line quilting is just the ticket.
    2. FISHES ! (I have a yard, well, not anymore…I'm carefully using a little here and there..)

    3. C'mon SPRING.

  29. AnnMarie March 8, 2014 at 4:40 am #

    Love it ~~ especially the back!

    Your quilt is gorgeous—so cheerful. My birthday is March 12, and my dad's is March 13. Bring on the birthday cake, Baby—I will be wearing my stretchy pants with the elasticized waistband.

    Juice Boxes? I love the bright colors of this quilt!

    I read your post about your daughter turning two. Maybe you should have one more… ;).
