jump rope baby quilt

I finished another on my list of baby quilts (4 more to go). I'm really happy with this one, especially since it sort of just fell together. I already had the strips cut out, with plans of making another quilt like this one, but instead chopped them up a little and made it into a coin quilt of sorts. this quilt measures 38x41in. Not too big. I try to keep baby quilts a reasonable size so mom can carry them around if needed, also the backing doesn't have to be pieced--which is a big time saver. i used this plaid piece on the back, it's not my favorite (i thought i was ordering something different online), but I really like it on this quilt.
