Another Siblings Together Quilt

Many moons ago, when Lynne of Lily's Quilts set up the original Siblings Together Quilt Bee, I was given a bundle of Storybook by Kate and Birdie by Moda. I made 2 very similar quilts with this :

I was left with a large number of HST's and a small amount of fabric. I therefore made another quilt with these 'leftovers'

I had great fun arranging the HST's in a pattern I liked but ran out of HST's to make the central panel any bigger ( and I didn't have enough fabric to make any more). I did have a pile of small pieces however, so I added a border of squares ( with a bit of fudging). I also managed to stretch the background fabric to add another small edging border.

I quilted it fairly lightly with a dogwood pattern over the HST's, circles over the inner border and a zigzag over the final border. I used the cheater fabric, which came in the bundle to bind it but could only use a single fold binding in order to have enough fabric.

For the back, I used the last of the scraps and Ikea Nummers fabric
