Crazy Nine Patch Quilt

I finally finished the crazy nine patch quilt for Penelope. I used this tutorial for the blocks.
Crazy Nine Patch
I decided to make a quilt for her bed that was busy and wouldn't show anything that got on it. I folded and put away the park slope quilt I made for her bed until she is older. I decided the white was a little crazy for her since she is only (almost) 3.
She loves it.
The quilt is 64" x 94" and is a good twin size.

The back I used leftover scraps and also a fabric from the front which I love. It is from the line Pick a Bunch by Robert Kauffman, Loops and Daisies in Orchid. Love this fabric. It is hard to tell from the picture but it is gorgeous in real life.
The back
I did straight line quilting which didn't turn out as straight as I was hoping. For some reason this quilt was the devil to sew I think it had something to do with using my back up machine to quilt & bind this quilt. I am never doing that again. Atleast Penelope is easy & she loves it and doesn't notice all of my quilting mistakes.
Quilting
Next up is Kids Clothing Week. I hope to get the girls some clothes made this week!

Looks great to me, and as the patches are wonky, surely the quilting should match :o)
