I finished another quilt

I am thrilled to have finished a second quilt! This one is just for snuggling under in the living room or for use on beds as needed - in other words, it wasn't made for anyone in particular, just general use. Here's the post talking about the fabrics, and of course I had to repost the picture of two-year-old Noah in his trendy shirt that became the lead fabric for this quilt.

Anyway, here is the quilt:

The back is voile, which I thought was a little flimsy so it's a double layer - one layer of white voile and then the floral voile.

I just did simple straight-line quilting with my walking foot:

I had some of the binding fabric leftover from Noah's quilt and it was a perfect match so I used it on this one too:

And of course a label finishes it off.
