Pink and Chocolate Brown

So, I quilt. Not always very well, but nonetheless I quilt. I am really bad about piecing a quilt top together and then forgetting about it for several weeks or months. Anyway, this is a little quilt I just finished last night after it laid around for well over a month.
 This is a small quilt, maybe for a baby. It measures 30 inches by 24 inches. I hand pieced and hand quilted this whole quilt, hearts included. The solid pink is an old pillow case and the other fabrics I had left over from other projects (Quilts for Riley!). I'm not sure what the name of the batting is called, something I picked up from Hobby lobby. Binding is definitely the worst part about quilting. I put it off as long as I can. It makes my fingers hurt so bad! The backing is a solid white cotton that has been around for a while too. I think I will start buying plain white sheets to back with. That's what my Grandmother always uses, so we'll see!

I'm really happy with how this turned out. I thought it was going to be a little bigger, but oh well. Not sweating the small stuff today!
