    I hope this worked!

    My first quilt that I made for my 16 year old granddaughter. She chose the fabric and I used two layer cakes and Jenny's tutorial for the sliced layer cake and one to show me quilt binding I think it worked out well and I can't wait to start the next one.

    Oh, I nearly forgot - I had to add some appliqué hearts because I managed to snip the front of the quilt with my scissors!!!!! My next buy is a pair with rounded ends! Lol.

    I love it. Bright, fun colors, and polka dots all over, with a little of this and a little of that spread around. Too darn cute.

    Love it! I'm a big fan of polka dots. Your granddaughter must have a very cheerful disposition to choose these fabrics.
