fo: Henry's Baby Quilt

I made this for a friend's new baby, using mostly scraps and a backing fabric that I got to coordinate.  It's an unusual color palate for me but I like it! 
It looks sort of silly on the twin bed, but for once I had a desire to photograph a quilt on an actual bed, even if it's a baby quilt.  It measures 42 inches square, and I used 5 inch squares of fabric. 
This was my first time doing a simple nine-patch quilt.  It took me three days and probably about 15 hours (which is really way longer than it should, but I spend more time unjamming and re-threading my machine than actually sewing!)
