Patchwork Kindle Case

My bestie put in a request for a case to house the Kindle she received for Christmas.  After some deliberation (deciding on a case for your Kindle is serious business!), we finally settled on this tutorial from The Sometimes Crafter.  Remeber this post?  Here's what I turned those little squares into:

 Ed's Kindle kindly agreed to model it for me.  All fabric and supplies are from my stash, including the pink velcro.  Why I happen to have pink velcro, I will never know.  In the interest of using what I had on hand, I substituted a piece of old mattress pad for the batting.  I think it turned out a bit on the wonky side as compared to Christina's, because I have never really done much quilting (unless you count the mug mat I made at 4-H camp in the 5th grade).  If I make another, I will try to match up all of the squares a little better and place the stitching closer to the seams.  Or, I will just make a non-patchwork version :-)
Once you get the squares all sewn together, it really is very easy to get through the rest.  I like how it turned out, wonky-ness and all.  I hope my bestie likes it, too!
