The fabric around the panels just came from my scrap bin. I finally have a wonderful collection of scraps and I can usually find bits and pieces to finish a quilt, without another trip to the fabric store.
Of course, the classic Peter Rabbit:
I went with free motion quilting- the backing is just a dark blue flannel. Soft as can be.
And here it hangs on the crib, just waiting for the little person to join the world so she can use it!
Of course... we have a nursery to show off as well. Pictures of that to come.
