New baby quilt with hearts

The past couple to days I have been working on a rag quilted baby quilt in fabrics with hearts.  I had a couple in my stash, but I had to place 5 or 6 orders on Etsy and eBay to get enough fabric to make this 36 by 48 inch quilt.  I usually just start cutting and stitching, but I had to do a little planning here to make sure I had enough fabric.  There will be 108 five inch squares of fabric with hearts on the front.  I also had to cut 216 five inch squares of flannel because I am using flannel for the backing and the batting.  Having four layers of flannel in each seam creates a really fluffy appearance.  It’s hard to tell what the finished quilt will look like from this photo, but at least you can see most of the fabrics.
