Hello Friend Panel Quilt - Finished Top!

A second finished quilt top to show you!  Now this one was easy peasy.  Did you see the Hello Friend panel and complimenting child-friendly fabrics in the shop?  They are so stinkin' cute I could not leave them untouched for long!  This quilt top was an impromptu creation, made to be fun, wild and colorful.  

I took one panel, trimmed the sides and bottom a bit and then added in my first Hello Friend vine border in orange and yellow.  Two more borders followed:  a stripe from Color Theory and then a novelty yellow Hello Friend print that coordinates with the characters in the panel.  

As it grew, I had to either stitch together borders or add corner stones to give extra length.  I went with a light blue and navy pinwheel block in each corner using Hello Friend and Gooseberry.  They are perfect together.

I am delighted with how quickly this came together, what impact the color has on my eye and the super adorable critters that will entertain some small person one day. 

I have one more quilt top to show you tomorrow, so pop back for a peek!
