Little D's Dino Quilt

I finished Little D's dinosaur quilt yesterday. I really had fun doing it. I decided to lay it out with the four 12 in center squares because I wanted to emphasize the great prints. I love the fabrics. The blue inside border and backing is a soft fuzzy material (not minky, but close).

I had intentions of sewing the binding by hand on this quilt. It sat on my sewing table for almost a week waiting to be bound. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I was dreading it in fact. Finally, yesterday I picked it up and started. After 10 minutes I had only finished a small amount and gave up. I pulled out my stitches and finished it on my machine in 15 minutes. It was definitely worth the time saver and will probably hold up better in the long run, especially since this will belong to a little boy.
