I think it looks wonderful! It is so spring-timey and cheery
I washed my first quilt the same way that the recipient would wash it (I put it on a cold, regular cycle and then also dried on low heat) just to make sure that if it was going to fall apart it would do so in my hands rather than hers. Luckily it stayed in one piece and nothing came loose, and also some of my wonky small mistakes were a bit camouflaged once the quilt was washed as well!
I'm sure your best friend and the new baby will love it!
