Scrappy quilt for a new baby

My daughter's favourite pre-school teacher is going on leave next week to have her first baby, and I quilted like a mad woman to have this finished in time. (It ended up only taking me two days from start to finish!)

I improvised the piecing, backed it with an old cotton sheet I found at St Vinnie's, and it has a lovely soft cotton batting in the middle. I quilted it using random diagonal lines with my walking foot and self-bound the edges with the backing fabric (cheating, I know, but it works for me!).

I actually think this is my favourite quilt yet. Really found my mojo with this one.
