After procrastinating for a YEAR, I finally made a quilt for my good friend's son.  She has a vintage toy theme going on in his nursery, so we pulled some inspiration from that.  The border is the same fabric she used to make the crib skirt.  The backing was a remnant, so I got it at 50% off! Smiley

I kind of cheated and quilted it on my sewing machine.  I stitched on the binding by hand.  It's not my first quilt top, but it is my first completed quilt.  If it still counts, since I quilted it on a machine.

The front:



The back:

Wow I love that!
I love these retro prints (I used the pirates for my little boy's bedcover). This is a relly lucky little boy!

Why wouldn't it "count"?? I love the colors. It's adorable. I especially love the fabric you used for the back.

Thanks!  I had wanted to hand quilt it, but ran out of time.  And patience.  Smiley
