The Easiest Quilt I've Ever Made

As stupid as it sounds, I totally get mummy guilt when I spend too much time sewing, even if half the time the children are in the room with me playing. In an attempt to free myself of said guilt, yesterday I made my son a play-mat quilt. He is a three year old boy so the obvious choice was Lightening Mcqueen!

Here are the instructions.

1. Buy licensed panel from fabric store and accompanying themed fabric to go on the back.
2. Sandwich together with your choice of batting.
3. Quilt as simply or as detailed as you feel you have the time and inclination for.
4. Bind in matching colour.

For mine, I did the equivalent of 'in the ditch' stitching around the black border, a larger stipple all over the centre and wavy lines with intermittent stars in the red border.

Done. Love. Happy days.
