Friday Finish: Children's Delight quilt

It's Friday, and once again, I have a finish to share!  Thanks to Amandajean of "Crazy Mom Quilts" for setting up her regular Friday Finish link parties, where I'll be sharing again.  It's been a great motivator for me to get these UFO's done!

I started this quilt over 2 years ago, with one of the first charm square pre-cut fabric packs that I ever bought.  I'm not a big fan of pre-cuts, but the more quilts I make with them, the more they grow on me!

With all of the seams in this quilt, I decided to just use my walking foot and quilt it with "stitch in the ditch".  Now that I'm much better at free-motion quilting, I can finally understand why experienced quilters say it's actually faster to free-motion that to do this.  It took a long time, but I like how it turned out.

I was lucky enough to have a nice 3 yard piece of a fabric I got on clearance when I lived in Michigan (where I also bought the charm pack).  It was just barely enough, and looks great!  I'm pretty sure this is the last big piece of fabric that I had in my stash from Michigan :(.

With these pretty crocuses popping up in our yard, and the weather being so pretty, I'm going to be outside playing the rest of the day!  How about you?
