Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!

Finally, finally, I can show you pictures of the finished Fandango Cartwheels quilt! Whew! This one is definitely in my top 5 favorites for quilts I have made. I love the design, the fabric, the backing, the quilting, the binding, the size, everything about it! Take a look...

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!Kate Spain's Fandango fabric was so fun to use in this design. The colors and patterns in her fabrics are always so lovely and happy.

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!The Cartwheels pattern is from AmandaJean over at Crazy Mom Quilts, and it is one of her many Moda Bake Shop recipes which you can find HERE.

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!I pieced the back of this quilt with the leftover blocks and squares from the front and from cuts of Fandango yardage that I was able to find at different online shops. I love shopping for fabric online!

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!The quilt had not yet been washed when I took these pictures so it does not have the crinkly quilty quality about it that happens after the first washing.

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!It is also perfect for a twin size bed, as you can see. It is plenty long enough even to go over the pillows and plenty wide enough to go down each side. It measures about 64 by 88 inches.

Fandango Cartwheels Quilt ~ Complete!I put this quilt on Grace's bed because it is the only stand-alone twin size bed in the house just to show how it fits on a twin size bed, so sorry for the messy room! But you know, it is summer vacation and she is only 7! The white with blue squares showing beneath the quilt in this picture is the fitted sheet I leave on the trundle bed. It's not part of Grace's real bedroom decor!

So that's it for my finished quilts for now! Since finishing this batch, I have actually pieced two more quilts so I'm gearing up for another little quilt fest on the long arm! How fun!

This quilt is available for purchase and will be listed in my Etsy shop soon for $350 plus shipping, but if you are interested in owning it, let me know before I list it and I'll do a custom listing for you for $325 and free shipping, US customers only please!

Hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I am enjoying mine! The days seem to go by so slowly, but I know before long, it will be time to get the kids ready to go back to school, and this time, I will be going too! Yes, I've decided to go back to college, and I'm very excited about it! More on that later though!

Happy Stitching!
