32-2015-#5. Baby quilt

Today I finished this cute little baby quilt for one of our staff.  

It's smaller than I wanted it, measuring 35x42 inches. Still big enough for a crib but a little small for a toddler.   This quilt is a stashbuster pieced with cotton scraps from a quilt I did for my mom last year. It's got a pale pink Minky back and high loft poly batting making it puffy and soft. 

I have never done any appliqué so on the circles I tried a few different stitches (leaves, bows, cars, blanket stitch and a few more).  Going around a circle distorted the images somewhat and they look a little messy.  I would definitely do the blanket and bows again! 

I hope the new little owner will enjoy it.
