Baby Quilt Project DONE!!

This is a project i have been working on and off for a first ever attempt at a quilt.
So i thought start out simple and small would be a good way to go. I also had to make it neutral colours so i did reds and browns to make it a natural feel like nature..most of it is from scraps of fabric i already had so i only had to get the batting and the flannel back of it.

I don't know how anyone can do a bigger one as i had a tough time fitting this in my sewing machine but i had like 3 layers of cotton batting to make it very thick as i actually plan to use it more as a floor cover than a blanket. Thank to my friend, Laurraine for the great quilting tips!
