It all started with a fat quarter bundle of the super cute new collection from Riley Blake Designs called Eat Your Veggies by Sandy Gervais. The fabric is shipping to stores now, so be sure to keep an eye out at your local quilt shop! (I did find a shop with a preorder for it HERE!)

I drew up some dinosaur shapes and added prairie points for spikes!

I added a few more (and larger!) prairie points around the edge for a fun border then loaded it on my longarm for quilting. I used Warm & Natural batting - my go-to!

Meander quilting on a dinosaur quilt

I did a quick meander and just lifted the prairie points to quilt under them.

I even remembered to sew in one of my labels when sewing on the binding!

I used four colors of Aurifil 50wt for the quilt. I used #1148 Light Jade, #5017 Shining Green, and #2235 Orange for the dinosaurs, then used #2105 Champagne and #2235 Orange for the quilting.

I absolutely love the texture of the prairie points!

This would make such a fun baby quilt or baby play mat!

This is such a fun fabric collection, and I still have lots of leftovers from the fat quarter bundle! I'm thinking some matching pillows should be next!
