Playing With Horses Quilt

This weekend I made this adorable wholecloth quilt for April. It fits perfectly in her crib. I've only really made about 5 quilts in my whole life (including this one and this one) but I think this is among my favorites. I love the simplicity and the girly feel without being pink and purple.
I used Heather Ross's Girl Playing with Horses fabric in peach and brown for the main fabric and used some orange Far Far away fabric for the binding. I decided to do hand sewn binding for this quilt. I've done it before and I think it gives the quilt a much more personal touch.
I'm not sure how much use this quilt will get through the summer but for right now we've been having colder nights so the weight of it is perfect. I almost wish I made it bigger so we could use it for years and years to come. Bigger quilts need bigger sewing spaces though. Someday I guess.
