1600 quilt with a twist

This has been one of the quickest quilts I have every made.
Using the method of joining a jellyroll together into a long strip and then sewing the end to the top, cutting the fold and repeating until the required length/width the main area of the quilt was made. Next I cut off 4 strips from the sides and added cream borders and then the coloured strips.
Finally after long arm quilting by a friend, I heat-n-bonded letters of the alphabet and randomly sewed them to the top as this quilt will be for my granddaughters 4th birthday present.
