Dinosaurs

 This is one of those patterns that as soon as I saw it, I knew I would be making it, and I knew I would be making it more than once! Josh loves this pattern - he has been excited by every block and thrilled with the finished quilt. And pretty disappointed when he realised it wasn't for him.

The pattern is Dinosaurs by Elizabeth Hartman - her patterns are just the best - they are fun, stunning, perfect for all family members, incredibly well-written and a joy to make. Yes, they are at the more expensive end of the pattern spectrum, but I honestly believe they are worth every penny - so far I've used each pattern at least twice in various guises!

This quilt was gifted within an hour of it being finished to the newest addition in the family - Baby Rory. 

And Rory's big brother needed a Triceratops cushion to match so he didn't feel left out. 

The fabrics are all from my stash - mostly blenders, lots of solids. The background is Kona Juniper which is a lovely rich dark green. The backing is an Asda duvet cover which is just perfect!

And don't worry - Josh will be getting his own version - I'm planning to make him the full size version - but first I have another to make as a Christmas present!

Your quilt looks wonderful! The dinosaurs are SO cute! And leaves for them to munch on too. Love the bold colors against that green. Can’t wait to see what color Dinos Josh gets.

I love your version of this, the green background is perfect! I love Elizabeth's patterns too, I made forest animals for my new baby grand daughter, it was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!

This is super cute!!!! So glad Josh will be getting his own version. I think my son would keep all the quilts if I let him!

Very cool! I purchased Awesome Ocean, but have not pieced one block yet. I'm hoping to soon. Glad your family enjoys these!
