I did straight line quilting over the entire quilt.
For the back I used the new Matsuri line from Connecting Threads, in the cherry blossom print. It turned out to be the perfect backing fabric, since my SIL used cherry blossoms as a graphic on one wall of the nursery!
I was able to give this little quilt to them in person a few weeks ago when I went to
try and smuggle my absolutely adorable niece home with me, visit them all. It seems a bit of a "grown-up" type of quilt for such a little baby, and I'll probably make her another one when she's old enough to beg for Disney Princess or Dora Explorer fabrics in a quilt. But for now, it fits the family and nursery well and I was so happy to make it for her.
