Classroom Quilt

Here is a little quilt that I made for my classroom.  It was unbelievably easy to make and went together really quickly.  I used a pattern by yoyo mama called Vintage Baby Quilt.  For the front of the quilt I used a muslin background fabric and Punctuation by American Jane for Moda  for the squares.  THe backing fabric is American Vintage by Showoffs Pattern #30685.  It looks like a chalk-dusted blackboard with math problems. 
I wanted to include a close-up of the front to show the details of the
fringed edges.  They really add to the charm of this little sweetie.
Can you believe the adorable quotient of this fabric?  Too cute!
The pattern called for this quilt to be quilted using straight lines to secure the squares; therefore, I got to put my walking foot to use!   I can't wait to bring this sweet little quilt to my classroom.  Perfection!
