I used one of Benartex's new fabric lines, Dori, and I love the bright, happy colors. This quilt was fun and easy from start to finish!
For the backing, I opted for the Dottie Lime fabric in the Dori line, and of course I used all of the scraps as well!
A bright orange binding finished the whole thing off! I'm calling this quilt Coral Reef. Something about these colors and prints reminds me of the surreal colors of tropical water.
The finished quilt measures 40 x 52- a super-versatile size- perfect for a baby, or for draping across a table for a cookout or pool party. I know we're heading into winter, but in true teacher fashion, I think about summer year-round!
