Subway Block Girly Quilt

Did you know that I have an etsy shop now?  I totally do.  I only have a few quilts in there so far, but I've still gotten a lot of traffic.  I was pleasantly surprised, just one week after opening it, to receive a message from a girl in Texas who wanted me to do a custom quilt for her.  Even more pleasantly surprising, the design she wanted is a fairly quick and easy one to do, and she wanted me to use two of my favourite girly fabric lines.

I used reds, pinks, blues, and yellows from Vintage Modern, which I have used before, and the brand new line Marmalade.  
I just "made up" the pattern. It's an easy one to do, and actually a great beginner top to try if you want to start up quilting!

I then finished it with a vine/leaf and flowers topstitching and a "raggedy" edge made from scraps from the quilt top.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! The girl who ordered it LOVES it and has been raving about it, which makes me happy too :)
