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.

What a lovely quilt for a little baby girl. I am sure it will be treasured for years to come.
It was my intention, thanks for stopping!
The yellow elevates this quilt far beyond the sickly sweet of all pink. I’m so glad you mixed it in.
A beautiful quilt…I love it…you make such cheerful quilts 😃💕
