Trapezoid Quilt

I have stacks of  receiving baby blankets leftover at my house from having my four kids. Instead of throwing them out or donating them, I decided to make each of my kids a quilt using the fabric from their receiving blankets they used. 
This is the first one I have completed. I used the pattern/instructions from Moda Bake Shop. I used their template for the blocks but made up my own arrangement to make the quilt the size I was looking for. This was my first attempt with making a non-straight edge on a quilt. I love how it turned out!

For the backing I used Chenille fabric, which makes it a heavier blanket and so much more snugly!
