Girlie Goodness

Last week I got on a kick of sewing and have been trying to finish up projects here and there. I decided to make a bigger, heavier crib quilt than the elephant blanket I made for the baby. The winters are cold and I needed a project so I set out to buy this fabric. The strip quilt is the only blankets/quilt I've ever made so I decided not to complicate things since I don't have mom here to rescue me. The top is all cotton and the back piece is the plush faux fur. I always thought it looked like roses not fur and I love all the bright colors.

 Here are my strips all cut and ready to be sewn.

And here is the finished quilt. There are puckers and some crooked lines and other mistakes but it isn't bad for my first actual quilt. (I can't turn the pictures and I'm too tired to figure it out right now).
