The quilt is done!

I am pleased to report that Marlowe's First Quilt is done!  I say first because this project has been amazing for me - it was creative, inspiring, challenging enough but not impossible.  The quilt is at once ugly, cute, funky, playful and sweet.  I am now addicted to sewing, and can't wait to work on my next project.  For now, here are some photos.

A close up on one of the squares. 
This is the back - the fabric is a thicker cotton, so hopefully will hold up to fun times at the park!

The border fabric is It's a Hoot by MoMo.  The binding and the quilt squares are Central Park by Kate Spain

Great job! I can't tell, did you make the patches yourself or was part of it prefinished? I made a cheat quilt once with all sorts of bugs on it, including praying mantis. I look forward to my future daughter using it.

Thanks guys! Natalie, the whole front I pieced together myself, which wasn't has hard as I thought it would be. The back is just two panels of the same printed fabric. I'm in love with quilting now - already planning a bigger one for us. :)
