Look What I Made: My First Quilt

Hurrah, one project I can cross off my to-do list! This is my first finished quilt. It’s a gift for Lily Rose, my friend Michelle’s new baby girl. I made it square so it could be used as a play mat or for whatever she likes really.

The fabric is Summer Song by My Mind’s Eye for Riley Blake Designs. I fell in love with the prints months ago and am glad to have had the opportunity to purchase and use them. I bought the fabric from Fabric Bee and Cherry Lane Textiles, using Etsy.com. The backing fabric is cotton, from Spotlight. I made the binding using a tutorial found on YouTube. The batting is cotton, also from Spotlight.
