It seems like this quilt took days and days and days, but the reality is that it only took about 9 hours. I only get about an hour or two a day to quilt so that's why it felt like it took forever. I downloaded an app on my phone called Task Timer and timed the whole process, which I have never done before, and I was surprised to find this quilt took 9 hours, start to finish and 2 hours of that time was spent hand sewing on the binding and hanging sleeve.

I had a lot of fun quilting this. At first I wasn't sure how to quilt it and I used this app on my iPad where I could upload a photo of the quilt and then doodle on it. So that is how I choose which designs to use, although I added stuff in the center block that I hadn't doodled and removed stuff from the lilac sections which I had doodled.
You can find the pattern for this quilt on Craftsy. It finishes at 43" square but after washing and drying mine measures 41" square. I added a hanging sleeve, so this can be a modern baby quilt, or a wall hanging, or even a table topper. There is no instruction for the hanging sleeve in the pattern though.
