This is the first time, I've ever made a quilt.  A close friend of mine is having a little girl, and both of us love already love the MLP:FIM show, so I decided to make her a MLP baby blanket/quilt.  I thought using the cutie marks would be a fairly simple way to go about it, so I made a rough pattern of each cutie mark, and then cut them out of felt, and hand stitched most of them to each block.  I got burned out with a few, and the big star and cloud were machine stitched. I finally finished it a few hours before the baby shower.  As far as the binding and backing, I just used an orange cotton for the back, and cut it slightly bigger than the front.  After I quilted the front to the back, I folded under the extra into a binding of sorts, and pinned and sewed it down. 

Here it is, in its entirety. 


And the individual blocks.






I really liked the way it turned out, and almost didn't want to give it away.  Thanks for looking.

I'm so glad you got it done in time, with my awesome pep talks of course. Wink

Seriously though, it looks great. The apples are of course my favorite, and I really like the purple fabric.

What a great first quilt! And being a MLP:FIM fan, I just had to come comment on it. Wink I always forget that felt is an option when doing appliqu. No worries about raveling. Tongue
