Quilty Quilt Quilt

I finished a new quilt this week! I'm not really a quilter, so this was a big deal!!
 It was going to be a baby quilt, but it ended up 44" x 66", so I think I'll use it on Bryn's toddler bed or draped over the crib or something. Bryn's room has some coral and orange in it, so I think it'll look fun in her room somewhere. 
The fabrics I used are random orange and coral prints from Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey, 4-5 Riley Blake prints, and then a couple prints from our local fabric shop Jenny's. The back is a Kona cotton solid in "Mango". Now I'm kind of wishing I would have done a print on the back instead of a solid color....but it's too late now! Oh well.
This was my last big sewing project before the baby comes, so I'm glad to have it finished!
(P.S. Thanks to my friend Autie for letting me quilt it with her quilting foot!)

It is a lot of work, so congrats!
