pink quilt for a baby girl

This quilt is for a baby girl just a few weeks old. She is the granddaughter of my friend Joan. Last year when browsing on the net I saw this baby quilt at Craftbuds and I liked the design. Here my version :

When Joan asked me to a make baby quilt, I remembered the Citrus and Mint Baby Quilt. So I got out my pink fabrics and started. When I made the first layout just with the pinks I thought it would be nice to get in also a touch of yellow. The quilt I made is larger than in the Craftbuds post. I have altogether 80 blocks instead of 42. The quilt is approx. a cot size. I have worked with the same cutting directions : 6,5″ squares as well as 2,5″ squares for the corners, but I used double of the material.

Some details of piecing and pinning :

I decided to quilt it in free-motion with meanders as I do not want to get out of practice.

Binding is in a light fuchsia shade.

  3. The yellow elevates this quilt far beyond the sickly sweet of all pink. I’m so glad you mixed it in.
