Banana Split quilt

I made this quilt from a pattern called Banana Split by Country Lane. You basically make a nine-patch, cut it in half horizontally and vertically, then put those together. I was lucky enough to pick up a large piece of yellow minky fabric from my sister Jan, so I put it on the back. I didn't even add any batting since it seemed heavy enough without it. I quilted it on my regular machine at home, which was pushing the limits of my abilities. This was a pretty large quilt to get under the machine and it was difficult to move around with the minky on the back, but I love how it all turned out. Because it's so soft and colorful, it has become the favorite for the family to grab while watching tv.
