Farm quilt

During my break I cleaned out my fabric stash. In my refound enthousiasm for sewing I had accumulated an awful lot this past two years. I looked at every thing and didn't just ask myself if I liked it (because I did - or else I would have bought it), but if I was really going to use it (not my own wisdom, I read that Amanda cleaned up her stash like that).
A lot went (back) to the thriftstore.
There were two fabrics that were bugging me. Children's print, farms. Was I going to use those? But I liked them too much to let go of them. When I saw them together I figured they would be perfect for a quilt. So that's what I made. I cut around the holes in the vintage fabric and combined it with some terry that I had no other use for.
Now it's a quilt, but I still don't know what to do with it. I did have fun making it though and that's what counts.
