I Spy quilt for my nephew

Here is the finished quilt (except for the label, in process). This is the first quilt that I quilted myself - nothing fancy, just stitch in the ditch. I used the high loft batting since it is a kid's quilt and he lives in the north, so I think he will like the extra poofiness. He likes cars, so the back is a roadway print that I hope will be fun with Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. The backing fabric wasn't quite wide enough, so I used some train fabric from the same line as two borders, and it blended in nicely (although the lines weren't totally straight...)
