Baby Quilt-- What Should I Do With It??

Now that the Christmas crafting rush is over, I've had more time to play around with some projects I've had in mind. One of the things I wanted to do was try out the quilting kit that came with the sewing machine my mother-in-law gave me when she upgraded over the summer. I ended up going into my scrap bin and piecing this simple little baby quilt. I used the open-toe stippling foot and the free motion guide grip to quilt and the walking foot to sew on the binding. I finished the binding by hand sewing-- my favorite part. I think I could hand sew binding all day! The finished quilt measures about 36 x 36. Now, should I put this in my Etsy shop? Keep it? Save it to give as a gift?

This turned out so cute! I love the pieced binding. Not sure I'd be able to let it go into the shop if I were you.

Personally I think you should give it to me ;) It's very cute. Do you want to put it in your etsy? Or do you see yourself giving it as a gift to someone. My feeling is that a quilt is something personal, only you can decide what to do with it.
