Then came the decision of how to use the charm packs (and I only ended up using four of them to make this quilt). I decided on Eleanor Burns "Tossed Nine Patch" pattern which uses five inch squares.
Breagha's little stack of quilts is growing and although she is under the age of 2, it will be interesting to see which quilts will be her favorites as she gets older. Grandma plans to ensure she has a good collection before that happens.

The cat in this picture does not belong to us. He lives next door but likes to come over every single day - even going so far as to sleeping over almost every night. I guess you could say he does live here, lol. He is a quilt lover himself and has to do a "test run" on every quilt that is made.
Backed the quilt in flannel. (Yes, I know, for someone who doesn't like flannel, Breagha's quilts are almost all flannel!!!!) The binding was done in yellow as well.
It's a lovely yellow with bright green frogs.
So, that's one more quilt done for Breagha. Next stop is the post office to have it shipped over to Scotland. It should arrive in time for a spring outing......
