My first patchwork quilt ... thanks Amanda Jean for the inspiration!
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. If I had it to do over again I would pick different colours for the backing and binding.
All the material is from my scraps and stash.  For the backing I bought some orange polka dot flannel. 
Normally I use a cotton batting, but on this one I  tried a polyester ..... I definitely prefer the feel of cotton.
Right now I am working on hand quilting a baby quilt that I used a 80/20 batting on.  So far I like the feel of it ... I'll see how it feels once it's washed and dried.

Finished size: 76 x80
