I decided to sew a whole cloth quilt ~ my first one :)
This is a great project for a first time machine quilter. I used just 1 yard of fabric for the top (itty bitty berry by Alexander Henry) and 1 yard for the backing (solid cotton), then a little extra fabric for the binding (vintage floral). I'm not very experienced with quilting and I think I may have broken a few rules. I kept it really simple and only sewed parallel lines for the quilting. Also I rounded the corners, to do this I took a circle jar lid and traced it at each corner.
I found these tutorials to be helpful:
