Quilting A Bit on the Side

I had a few scraps left over from the large order I did a month or two ago so I got to thinking what I could do with all the lovely left overs. And than someone on a message board I frequent asked if anyone could make a quilt out of left over receiving blankets she saved from her daughter. She wanted to create a memento that her daughter could use over the years instead of just her infant life.

And I got to thinking that I may be able to pull it off. So I practiced. With the scraps. Now I'm no master quilter. Nothing close. But I have made a quilt or two in the past and am just rusty at it. Here's my first attempt while using up the left over scraps.

What do you think? I LOVE the colors but would love to make something bigger. This is a little bit larger than my rotary mat (18" x 24 ") so it wouldn't be more than a newborn blanket. I'm hoping that the recipient loves it as much as I do.

I'm going to give it to that mama friend who placed the large order I worked on just recently. She already chose the fabric and colors so I knew she'd love it. And, just like me, she's pregnant with a baby girl! Super exciting news seeing as though we both had baby boys first.

I'd love any input you have out there on quilting, new products and anything else you might like to see on EJ and Ellabird.
