Don't look, Katy!

My sister Katy liked the colours of the Wonky Squares quilt I made, so I've used the same fabrics to start a quilt (or wall hanging) for my niece Amy, who will be one year old soon.
I wanted to try out the technique where you sew on patches, leaving raw edges, then wash & dry it to soften up the edges. I just cut out patches at random, and layed them all out, then pinned them on ready to sew. I hope it works!
I got the idea from the 'Scruffily Quilt' shown here.
