Here is my first attempt at quilting.  I saw this fabric and wanted to make a small quilt for my son who loves thomas the train.  This quilt is just crib size so i figured it was a good place to start.

This is what 2 hours and $6.27 got me:





I used a fleece for the backing to make it nice and soft




Any advice of improvements I can make would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It looks great.  Not bad at all for your first quilt.

My advice would be to check out some quilting books from the library, or maybe get a couple magazines to get some ideas about what you like and what you don't like.   More generally, it's good to have a little more quilting. The more quilting the better the whole quilt will stay together. 

You're off to a great start! =)
