Along with the Pink Owls triangles, I also received six yellow triangles that I was unable to use with that quilt because they were cut to a different size. They were just what I needed to give me the motivation to use up more of accumulated children’s fabric from previous toddler quilts.

I was even able to find in my stash some aqua coloured fabric from the same line.

The quilt went together quickly and was glue basted on my design wall in no time.

The backing was from the cupboard – a metre bought at a fabric sale for this exact purpose. Perhaps not the perfect colour accompaniment but close enough. And as it was from my stash and more than two years old, it was ‘free’ – at least, that’s my definition.

Quilting was not elaborate, some wavy lines to look (a bit like) waves, with the occasional fish outline included in the water.

The binding, machined sewn in-the-ditch from the front, was fabric that matched some of the fishy triangles.

Another completed toddler quilt headed to WAQA Community Quilts.
