Play mat quilt for my baby boy!

I started this quilt for my baby boy when I was pregnant. He is now 5 months old and I have finally finished the quilt! Just in time for when he will find it interesting! He is not quite sitting and not quite crawling so hopefully he will have some fun with it for tummy time before he learns to crawl and everything "over there" will be more interesting!!!
I was inspired and followed most of the instructions from Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings but I decided that instead of coloured fabric, I would have raw edge applique images under the flaps. I love it! Hopefully my baby boy will too! Will find out tomorrow! :)

Raw edge applique of the car. This shape was from one of Kellie Wulsohn's patterns.

Applique plane that I drew from random images.

Flaps shut
Finished quilt! Unfortunately the lighting doesn't do the quilt any favours... I really should have taken this in daylight but I just finished it and wanted to post a photo up immediately!
