My first quilt

This is my first quilt. I'm making it for my friend's little boy. I'm not following a pattern, just making it up as I go along, which I'm really enjoying. I'm afraid that the actual quilting part may not be as much fun, but I'm excited to give it a try!
I'm using the Funky Monkey squares from Moda. And I've picked out this fun spaceship flannel fabric for the backing! It reminds me of the old Campbell kids ads.

I loooove the flannel spaceship fabric! Where did you get it? I'd love to make a blanket for Piers out of it.

Really great Megs!!! The flannel backing takes it up a notch. You are so clever! -S

I am planning to get a nice used sewing machine for my graduation present (I have been inspired!).
