My version of quilt in a day

Many of us know about a quilter who claims to be able to make a quilt in a day. Now, I've done pretty well before at retreats with finishing a top in a day, but never a whole quilt! This weekend, I did my own version of a quilt in a day. I picked out some fabric on Friday afternoon to make a baby quilt for my niece and nephew's baby shower, which was today. Rather than bother with piecing, I found a fabric that worked great for them, as they are big pet lovers. Last night, I loaded it on the frame, quilted it with topsy turvy hearts, and trimmed it up. 

I bound it by machine today and ran out of fabric from the backing, so did two strips of backing fabric and two strips of a Moda marble called Orchid. I think it turned out great and she really liked it.
