sneak peak: quilt

I finally finished piecing the quilt top that's been in the works for like a year now. I'm really excited to get this thing finished, hopefully in time for the kiddo's birthday next month. I used vintage sheets for the top {found here and here},the green/white plaid will become the binding {cut on the bias}, and I'm using this oh so soft pink polka dot print from City Weekend for the backing {found at my friend Amy's new fabric shop}.

p.s.  don't forget to enter my latest giveaway here!
