liquid crack quilting

My kit came in the mail the other day, Monday I think ?

I ripped it open and started laying out the strips. I love this fabric. I love it.

I drank 64 ounces of liquid crack (ice coffee) yesterday and I managed to sew the entire top in less than 2 hours. I also burned my hand on the iron, but that's typical for me.

I love the blue, orange and white combination. I am not the only one, both Ryan and Kegan gravitated to the quilt when they got home. I am making this for Gavin, but I think he might end up sharing with Kegan.

I smile each time I see the little fish in their bag of water. I wish I could get a hold of some more of this fabric, I would love to make Gavin a matching pillowcase.

Today I plan on putting it all together, I am going to machine quilt the top, with a plain straight stitch across. I was going to leave the backing as is, but now I think I might trim a 2-3 inch section off the side of the quilt and incorporate it into the back of the quilt.

Something a smidge different.
