Last week on Instagram I shared some bonnets I've been working on lately. I have more to share about that in another post, today I'm focusing on a little play mat/quilt I finished for Raina recently.
I used scrap blocks from a quilt I made for my niece two years ago and some extra minky I had for the back. I quilted it myself, which was an interesting experience since I was too impatient to wait until after I could run to the store for a walking foot. There is quite a bit of puckering in a few places but it was a great learning experience and it just adds to the charm. I also machine quilted the binding on, which I figured was just fine for a play mat.
I love how it turned out and it's nice to have something that's thick, soft and cozy for her to play on, especially during the winter on our cold floors!
